Biscayne Nature Center for Environmental Education

The BNCEE was established by Miami-Dade County Public Schools (M-DCPS) in 1971 to provide instructional programs that foster an awareness and appreciation of the natural world and promote an understanding of ecological concepts. Units of study emphasize the special geological features, natural resources, and habitats of South Florida while encouraging students to develop a sense of stewardship and to live harmoniously with our vital native communities.

In addition to classroom curriculum materials and activities, the BNCEE programs feature one and two days of field investigations in our National Environmental Study Area located within MDC's Crandon Park on Key Biscayne.
