Sturgeon City represents a unique concept, the conversion of a wastewater treatment plant into a civic and environmental education center. For more than 40 years, the City of Jacksonville discharged its wastewater into the New River. In 1997, the City moved to an environmentally friendly and expandable land application treatment system which stopped discharging the treated effluent into the river.

It's almost spring! Did you know that the world's largest known pollinator is the black and white ruffed lemur?
We are so excited to be learning about pollinators this week in our homeschool science program, and just purchased a pass for them to tour the Duke Lemur Center virtually this Thursday! We love that programs like these are accessible virtually.

September is Fall cleanup month for waterways around the country and around the world. While we may not be having an organized event, we encourage everyone to get out and cleanup their favorite river, stream, beach or any other area that is near our wonderful waterways. Please share photos with us and let us know how much trash and recycling you collect during this month. Keep in mind, we have a great rolling launch here at Sturgeon City, you just may want a cart to get down the boardwalk with your canoe or kayak.
