Sturgeon City is a non-profit organization specializing in civic and environmental education. We provide programs and events to area youth to cultivate a love and understanding of science and the environment.
The nonprofit operates out of the administration building of the former Wilson Bay Wastewater Treatment Plant. Sturgeon City plans to build a civic and environmental education center, which will contain about 43,000 square feet of space for classroom space, native flora and fauna displays and applied research. The center will also include demonstrations on how the City of Jacksonville worked with area residents to help restore Wilson Bay and how the City continues to support other areas in need of restoration.
Current operations provide for a laboratory, exhibition space, meeting space and offices.
