Georgia-Pacific’s pulp and paper operation in Palatka, Florida, helped develop the St. Johns River Center: Adventures in a Wetlands Ecosystem. Geared toward students, the center is a fun, interactive space for learning about the ecology of the St. Johns River and the wetlands area, and its connection to the history, culture and industry of Palatka.
The center will offer curriculum available to all teachers and that it meets Florida State teaching standards. Topics include the St. Johns River system, the various types of wetlands, native plants and wildlife, and the waterways’ impact on the local community.
