The Oxbow Eco-Center is both a nature preserve and an environmental learning center in Port St. Lucie, Florida, situated on 225-acres along the North Fork of the St Lucie River. It is the Environmental Education and Community Outreach Division of St. Lucie County’s Environmental Resources Department. The property was acquired with Environmentally Significant Lands and Save Our Rivers funding in a partnership between St. Lucie County and the South Florida Water Management District. The land is managed and preserved to sustain native plants and wildlife. Boardwalks, pedestrian trails and observation towers allow visitors to fully experience nature without disturbing it.
Oxbow Eco-Center staff and volunteers provide environmental programming throughout the year to residents of all ages and backgrounds through school field trips, workshops, youth camps, guided tours, public events, and service learning opportunities.
