About

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.

Red Tide in the Loxahatchee River

Check this website for the latest information: www.tinyurl.com/LRDredtide

The Loxahatchee River District (LRD) is actively monitoring the red tide affecting our area. To see a map showing red tide sample results for Palm Beach County, please click here: https://tinyurl.com/LRDredtide

Keep in mind, there is a considerable turnaround time for shipping and processing samples. Please be patient. As new data are available, they will be posted to this web page as soon as we have them.  LRD sampled Jupiter area beaches and the Loxahatchee River on Monday and Wednesday (data not yet available), and we will sample this upcoming Tuesday. We will continue to sample until this red tide episode subsides.

LRD is collaborating with Florida Fish & Wildlife Conservation Commission, Palm Beach County Environmental Resources Management, and Mote Marine Laboratory to make this information available to you.
