Manatee Observation and Education Center

The endangered Florida manatee often hangs out resting or playing near the Manatee Observation Center in Fort Pierce.  The facility was built to overlook a popular hang out for manatees where the freshwater Moore’s Creek runs into the Indian River Lagoon. The Fort Pierce Utilities Authority uses Moore Creek’s freshwater to cool pipes at its electrical plant which then pumps warm water back into the Creek. The manatees love this warm water in the winter and continue to visit the freshwater creek year round.
