In partnership with the South Florida Water Management District (SFWMD),
Center for Environmental Studies manages a comprehensive education and research center at the
Riverwoods Field Lab. Located on a remnant run of the Kissimmee River,
Riverwoods is the central staging area for the SFWMD's research and
monitoring of the Kissimmee River Restoration Project, a collaborative
effort between the SFWMD and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. To
maximize the potential of Riverwoods, CES has developed education and
research programs that complement the SFWMD's needs and promote the
benefits of the Kissimmee River Restoration Project.
