About

The River Center is Closed until further notice. 

All programs are cancelled for the remainder of March.  Registered participants will be contacted and refunded for any program payments .

The mission of the River Center is to foster a sense of environmental stewardship for the Loxahatchee River’s diverse watershed with quality education programs, exhibits and meaningful events. We remain committed to that mission, while being proactive in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. While we always practice sound hygiene at our nature center, we do not want to risk a visitor coming into contact with the disease because we cannot offer safe social distance.

The Loxahatchee River District is committed to maintaining public health in our communities.


The River Center features live aquatic tanks, interactive exhibits, and a touch tank that represent the Loxahatchee River system from a freshwater cypress swamp to seagrass-dominated estuary to marine ecosystems. The center provides a fun, educational opportunity for school children, adults, visitors, and long-time residents to learn about Florida’s first National Wild and Scenic River.

Our Mission is to foster a sense of environmental stewardship for the Loxahatchee River’s diverse watershed with quality education programs, exhibits and meaningful events.
