Local experts will be sharing their nature knowledge on topics ranging from beekeeping and native plants to bears and panthers. No reservations required.

Gore Nature Education Center Fall Class Series

Join us this fall as we learn about the early Florida Settlers and explore space while incorporating physics to explain how the universe is always changing. Classes start on Monday August 7th and run through Monday, December 11th.

Classes designed for student ages 7-11.

Each class is 1.5 hours and the fee is $20.00.

Support Our Mission

Critical habitats for endangered species in Southwest Florida are succumbing to urban sprawl. The endangered Florida panthers’ corridor in rural Collier County has been diminished with recent approvals for residential villages in this area.

Vacant properties adjacent to the Gore Nature Education Center and Conservation Collier’s Dr. Robert H. Gore III Preserve are available for purchase. Protecting this land helps to expand the natural corridors required by the Florida panther and other large animals. Your contribution will allow us to acquire and conserve vulnerable property in key areas, ensuring Florida’s treasured resources will be available for generations to come.
