ANERR education programs are primarily focused on K-12 students and teachers in Franklin County, and are designed to support the long tradition of stewardship of Apalachicola Bay. The rural nature of Franklin County provides a unique opportunity in that each year, every student in pre-K, first, third, fifth and seventh grades participates in standards-aligned ANERR education programs that focus on the ecology of Apalachicola Bay and its value to the community.
ANERR educators strive to create a special sense of wonder and discovery that are important in developing a strong bay stewardship ethic. Learners of all ages benefit from spending time with our knowledgeable and enthusiastic staff and volunteers. ANERR's Nature Center is where ANERR conducts its research, education and coastal training programs. When the center reopens, visitors are welcome to stop by during our open hours to enjoy a variety of educational, interactive and live exhibits. In the meantime, please visit the Nature Center main page.
