Marine Environmental Education Center Anniversary

Date(s) - Saturday, March 3, 2018
10:00 am - 4:00 pm

Historic Carpenter House


The Marine Environmental Education Center (MEEC) was opened with the desire to educate and delight locals and tourists alike through our educational resident green sea turtle, Captain, and the splendor of the South Florida coastal environment. The MEEC was fostered from a partnership between Broward County Parks and Recreation and NSU. The facility is located on the historic grounds of the Carpenter House at Hollywood North Beach Park in Hollywood, Florida. Along with Captain the green sea turtle, the Carpenter House features an interactive Interpretive Center with displays ranging on topics from sea turtle conservation to marine debris.

To mark its one year anniversary, a celebration has been planned.

The family-friendly event will feature face painting, a “kiss the Captain” photo booth (not the real Captain the sea turtle, of course,) arts and crafts and more. In addition, food trucks will be on hand for visitors to grab a quick snack. The cost is $3 per person, with the proceeds going directly to the operation of the MEEC at the Carpenter House.

Cost: $3 per person
