Due to the current circumstances and based on the CDC’s recommendations, St. Lucie County Environmental Resources Department (ERD) will be suspending all in-person guided hike and paddle programs until further notice.

We are, however, EXCITED to announce that we will be offering Virtual Guided Nature Programs in the near future.  Our goal is to have some prerecorded videos, like the teaser below, as well as some live in the field.  Stay tuned for some exciting programs and chances to virtually visit with your favorite program leaders and volunteers.
