"RESTORATION will be an evening full of elegance, sensitivity, and education with elements of surprise."  

Thomas R. Schidel Education & Event Pavilion

The unveiling of the Thomas R. Schidel Education & Event Pavilion will reflect a culmination of several years of planning and community support to greatly enhance the ELC’s unique Wabasso Island 64-acre campus into a more compelling place to visit for environmental education, science, human and environmental health, and nature experiences for all ages.


The facility enables new programmatic revenues and it will also incorporate many environmentally friendly features consistent with the ELC’s mission.

The Visionary Behind Restoration

Chris Foster.jpg

Chris Foster, President / Creative Director of FW Productions (and a Vero Beach Native) was immediately drawn to the ELC's vision of their newest facility and saw the immense potential for how the unique outdoor venue should be showcased. 

"After my conversation with Barb (ELC's Executive Director) I saw exactly what this evening should be. Restoration was the perfect place to start. This piece takes us on a journey of when our oceans were pure prior to the devastation of pollution.  The evening will fully engage guests, leaving them educated, inspired and uplifted." 


Attendees will experience an evening of elegance, exquisite food, entertainment, fundraising and, most importantly, become fully immersed in the Environmental Learning Center’s mission of educating, inspiring, and empowering all people to be active stewards of the environment and their own well-being.
