Moccasin Lake Environmental Education Center Closed For Renovations And Upgrades

Moccasin Lake Environmental Education Center is a 51-acre gem in the middle of Clearwater featuring trails and boardwalks surrounded by nature and wildlife. To keep the park bright and beautiful for visitors, the city is making some much needed improvements and upgrades. To do this, Moccasin Lake will close to the public on March 15 and reopen by January 2019.  The total cost of the project is $935,000, of which $200,000 is paid for through a matching grant from the Florida Department of Environmental Protection, Land and Water Conservation Fund.

Renovations will include a complete remodel of the interior spaces of the interpretive center including air conditioning for the entire building, upgraded space for the birds of prey volunteers, and public restrooms. New static displays and live animals will be on display once completed.
