Creating Environmental Stewards

Our mission is to become the model for inspiring youth leadership, civic involvement, habitat restoration, environmental education and stewardship of the New River and coastal wetlands.

We achieve our mission through providing hands-on environmental education programs for all ages that take place at the site of the former wastewater treatment plant for the City of Jacksonville.

COVID-19 Update

We hope you and your family are well and safe. We are continuing to follow the policies of the Onslow County School and therefore, all on-site programming remains suspended at this time. As state and local guidelines change and businesses begin to reopen, we are working to plan for future programs while keeping the health and safety of our staff and program participants our top priority.


Please feel free to contact Paula Farnell at 910-938-6456 or Amber Mallard at 910-938-5079 if you have any questions or concerns. We will work to keep everyone updated as things change. Please continue to monitor our website and our Facebook page for continued updates.


Thank you for your understanding during this time.
