Leaving behind the gift of nature

To honor those who were great supporters of the ELC and wished to see our mission to educate, inspire and empower all people to be active stewards of the environment

continue long into the future.  

In Memory of Michael Ball

May 20, 2020

Michael Ball, expert naturalist and self-taught botanist, became one again with the bountiful earth that he loved so greatly.

Those closest to Michael Ball have requested that a permanent plaque be created and displayed at the ELC in his honor.

In Memory of Ann Marshall Nace

August 29, 1936 - April 23, 2020

For over 30 years, visits from Ann's sons and granddaughters always included trips to the Environmental Learning Center to explore the boardwalks, rent kayaks or take a pontoon boat ride on the Indian River Estuary.


Ann cherished this beautiful resource and wanted to share it with others.
