Support the Red Door Project!

Help make a big difference at the Center and sponsor the Red Door Room project. For those of you who have had the opportunity of walking through our brightly colored doors you surely know the answer. Try to imagine a child visiting, learning, seeing with eyes WIDE open. Every week, over 400 students from ages 5-17 walk through these doors ready for an adventure. This experience will leave a footprint, a small step that will last a lifetime in their environmental education. Through our exhibits, marine life and the dedication of our teachers, we give them so much more than just a field trip. The Environmental Studies Council is a vital part of the growth, heart, and community pulse of the Center. We strive to make a difference every year in our fundraising efforts. This summer our Council’s goal is to give our RED DOOR room a makeover with interactive, sensory habitats reflecting the community we live in. Please join us in this effort by choosing to become a sponsor. Together, we can make a difference! Sponsorships of the Red Door Classroom are available at the following levels: Red Door Supporter: $500 Red Door Friend: $1,000 Red Door Visionary: $5,000 Red Door Dream: $20,000 To help support the Red Door project, please visit escmc.org and click on the Red Door Room project or call 772-219-1887 x 121.
