As CEO of The Charlotte Harbor Environmental Center (CHEC), I invite you to participate in some of our hands-on educational experiences on water and land at our two locations, Alligator Creek Preserve in Punta Gorda and Cedar Point Park in Englewood. We have activities and programs for all ages.

Join us for hiking our trails at your leisure, guided hikes with one of our Naturalists, photography exhibits, a unique gift shop, movie programs with discussions, focused lectures by Florida Master Naturalists, scientists, and historians, public wading sea grass adventures in our estuaries, fishing clinics, nature camps for school children, and a native plant nursery.

We would enjoy meeting with you about becoming one of our valued volunteers or members, too! Members receive special “gifts” and benefits, along with knowing they are supporting field trips for school children and our other programs and services.

Boat Fundraiser picture

To make this boat a reality, we need your help!

I hope that you will take the time to consider making a contribution to ensure many more students will have this exposure to CHEC's outdoor educational experiences and first-hand encounters which help foster a better understanding and appreciation of our ecosystem. The health of our 4th grade Environmental Boating Program depends on YOU. Please join me in helping to make sure this program can continue.
