Support Environmental Education & Research Programs for elementary, secondary and college students

Thank you for your interest in supporting CES’ programs at Riverwoods Field Lab! We offer field-based programs for students from all over. We are located on the historic Kissimmee River and use it as a living lab. Students explore the river on board our Kissimmee Explorer II pontoon boat to learn all about the world’s largest restoration project. In the Field Studies program, students learn how to conduct diversity and abundance bird surveys, test water quality, sample and identify wetland plants and aquatic invertebrates. Our Student Research program supports college students that are interested in writing reports and conducting research related to the Kissimmee River Restoration.

Please join our Friends of Riverwoods to help provide unique, outdoor educational experiences for our students. Your $50 annual membership includes special invitations to our events, your Friends card, our annual Field Notes Newsletter, and an Explore the Kissimmee River T-shirt. Corporate sponsors will be linked on our website.
