WABASSO -- On Jan. 2, the Environmental Learning Center is conducting a special program for grandparents who have grandkids visiting them.

It is an opportunity for grandparents to share time with the grandkids while they learn about Florida's natural resources.

The program is led by Rosemary Badger, an environmental educator, who specializes in early childhood education. She will lead the group in either exploring ELC's island campus or heading to a local beach, so participants should dress for outdoor exploration.

This program, which will run from 10:30-11:30 a.m., is appropriate for grandparents with grandkids who are between 4 and 7 years old. The cost is $10/family ($8/family of ELC members).

The Environmental Learning Center is located north of Vero Beach off County Road 510 at the western end of the Wabasso Bridge.

Its campus includes exhibit areas, native plant gardens, picnic facilities, gift shop and visitor center. ELC membership benefits, a list of its many field excursions, EcoVentures, including nature walks, canoe excursions and boating adventures can be found at www.DiscoverELC.org.

Reservations are required and may be made by calling the ELC at (772) 589-5050.
