The Forever Florida Learning Center
Here at the Forever Florida Learning Center, we are dedicated to preserving Florida's delicate ecosystems, wildlife and cultural heritage through education. We hope to make you aware of the delicate balance of Florida's natural environment and, hopefully, create the desire to personally experience Florida's ecology here at Forever Florida or through other avenues.
Preservation Through Education
Forever Florida is dedicated to the preservation of wild Florida – Florida in its original state. Our primary goal is to further knowledge of Florida's history, native plants, animals and fragile ecosystems.
Forever Florida wants to partner with the state's educators and parents to provide future generations of Floridians with the knowledge and understanding required to preserve our state's fragile ecosystems and natural wildlife.
Together with onsite educators, we have designed teaching aids for the classroom to help introduce students to Florida's ecosystems. These focus on expressing their fragility, showing how we interact with each ecosystem and explaining how to preserve these special places. Each course has been developed to be compatible with Florida's Science FCAT testing and the Sunshine State Standards. Click here to go to the Educator's Resources area.
Live Your Lessons
Forever Florida makes a great classroom. You and your students can experience Florida's fragile ecosystems in-person at Forever Florida through various fields trips including the Safari Coach Classroom, Nature Hikes and other hands-on experiences. Click here for more information.
Teacher In-Service Accrual
Forever Florida has developed programs available for teachers searching for non-traditional in-service point accrual. These include updated content on environmental issues specifically designed for Florida classrooms and varying age groups with unique lesson plan information to help students enjoy learning. The hands-on experiences educate teachers on how to use different concepts in the classroom, and allow them the opportunity to "relive" the educational excitement of learning.
On-Line Interactive Eco-Classroom (Under Construction)
The On-line Interactive Eco-Classroom is setup for use by students, parents and educators alike. You'll find detailed information on the various Florida eco-systems, native plants and animals and their relationships to each other and to us.
Feel free to use these resources for personal knowledge growth, for school projects or just for fun.
