Biscayne Nature Center Visitors Said…

“This nature center is one of my favorite South Florida sites to visit on a clear weekend day. Hiking trails, exhibit rooms with a variety of tanks, including a touch tank complete with sea cucumbers and sea urchins, and art spaces exhibiting environmental themed art works are what you can expect to see when you visit.” 

“We stopped in on our way from Miami to the keys and it was so perfect for an afternoon walk. We loved the mangrove forest and walked along the beach. While there were too many jellyfish to swim, the beach was very clean and natural and it was very educational! Definitely worth a stop if you’re in the area.”

“Amazing center for all ages. If you are a teacher, this is such a great hands-on experience for your students. Parents, take your children. You will get to see and learn about our ocean and marine life through hands-on engaging activities. It is open to the public.” 

“Absolutely stunning, educational.. tide was low… we went in to see and catch marine life (conch, fish), observe them and then release them back in their habitat.. every family should go and enjoy a beautiful day there!”

“We love to come here every year to support the sea turtle project. It’s awesome to learn about them and how we can help keep the ocean clean and safe for these incredible animals. You get to watch them send some new hatchlings to the ocean.”

“Excellent location to visit and learn hands-on about nature and how to protect it. It has a natural trail with lots of native plants, the trail takes you to be beach. Inside the building there is a great seashells collection and a very special exhibit of the life and accomplishments of our heroine Marjory Stoneman Douglas. Naturalist/guides are very knowledgeable and very friendly. They handle large groups and kids very well. This is a Florida gem!”
