The Brooker Creek Preserve Environmental Education Center officially opened its doors to the public on June 19, 2004.
Designed by Hoffman Architects, and built by Creative Contractors, the center is nestled in the woods at the end of a winding wilderness lane off Keystone Road in Tarpon Springs. Visitors to the center may spot a frog or egret as they follow a boardwalk through the woods from the parking lot to the three-building complex. The three buildings were designed with state of the art sustainable methods and materials. The boardwalk itself is environmentally responsible, composed of reclaimed plastic and wood – materials that would otherwise go unused in landfills.
A centerpiece of the center is the 6,000 square-foot Exhibit Hall. Visitors here are encouraged to immerse themselves in the various habitats found within the preserve. The Exhibit Hall features 22 discovery-oriented experiences revolving around natural Florida and our local history. There are a variety of hands-on displays designed to be as fun as they are informative.
Want to get involved? There are many opportunities, and training will be provided.
