The GTM Research Reserve

The GTM Research Reserve Environmental Education Center is home to Florida's Birding & Photo Fest!  The Educational Center provides a one-of-a-kind opportunity for the rapidly growing population of Northeast Florida to receive hands-on environmental education and natural resource interpretation.  Inside of the 21,000 square foot Environmental Education Center is an exhibit hall, aquariums, nature store, research laboratory, classrooms, meeting rooms and offices.  Feel free to browse the natural history exhibits and hands-on displays and study live animals.  Don’t miss the many retailers who will be exhibiting in the auditorium throughout the Festival!  

    There will be a registration desk located at the Environmental Education Center for participants to register for all available events; however, online registration is encouraged to ensure participation!
