Driftwood Education Center

100 Arthur J Moore Drive
Saint Simons Island, GA 31522



Driftwood Education Center's mission is to cultivate a personal responsibility and awareness of for our aquatic ecosystems. Through our vast array of educational programming, all participants will continue to develop their social and life skills. Our learner-based classes and activities weave one concept to another through four main themes (intertidal zones, freshwater habit, terrestrial ecosystems, and stewardship) which promote personal growth and critical thinking. It is the hope of Driftwood Education Center that our participants will become responsible members of their community and continue to have a lasting desire to care for and preserve their aquatic resources. "Water helped ancient man learn those first lessons about the rights of others and responsibility to a larger society.... It became part of the moral and mental legacy parents passed on to their children." M. Meyer, "Water in the Hispanic Southwest"
