art-gallery-915A partnership between art and the environment

The art gallery hosts several exhibitions each year. A partnership with the United Arts Council of Collier County enables annual exhibitions of painting and photography juried by local art experts while other showings feature works by local students, Rookery Bay Reserve friends & family, and occasionally individuals. Most of the works are available for purchase.

  • Rookery Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve and the United Arts Council have joined together to promote the arts and the environment. While applied science is the focus of most Reserve activities, we acknowledge that there are many pathways toward greater understanding of the natural world.
  • The Environmental Learning Center’s art gallery creates an opportunity for people to increase their sense of wonder for nature by stimulating and celebrating personal expression through the visual arts.
