Volusia County Environmental Management has convened a Water Education Task Team (WETT) to coordinate educational opportunities between all of our divisions, and to focus on water related education through all of our education and outreach efforts. We have created an Explore Volusia webpage that lists all of the educational offerings within Environmental Management, including the Marine Science Center, Lyonia Environmental Center and Conservation Lands Outreach. We plan to develop additional multi-media materials to broaden our ability to educate our residents and visitors. If you see a course of interest please contact Environmental Management at 386-736-5927 for more information.
