Roy Hyatt Environmental Center (RHEC)

Our Mission

The mission of the Roy Hyatt Environmental Center is to assist students in mastering science concepts and processes through the integration of science disciplines in studying the environment.  Our goal, from the Florida Environmental Education Act, is that the students "come to know the natural world as a complex system that must be cared for."  As we carry out our mission and work toward this goal, we also further the strategic aims of the School District of Escambia County, Florida, which are the following (1) highest student achievement (2) a safe learning and working environment (3) a high performing work force, and (4) an efficient and effective system.  Find out more about the School District of Escambia County at www.escambia.k12.fl.us.

Spring Scavenger Hunt

Spring is here!  Everyone loves to search for treasures!  Now is a great time to go outside and search for signs that spring has arrived!  The only rule that applies to a nature scavenger hunt is that you leave nature where it is, so don't remove it, just make a list or even better, take pictures!  Here are some suggestions for a spring scavenger hunt:

flowers

butterflies

frogs

green grass

beetles

birds

tadpoles

bird nests

birds singing

caterpillars

flower buds

ducks

crickets chirping

worms

baby animals

frogs singing

leaves on trees

hummingbirds

bees

You can look for these items and think of more of your own!  Have fun!

About RHEC

In 1968, the first Environmental Center to later be named in honor of Roy Hyatt opened to students in Escambia County, Florida.  In 1980, land at the present site on Tobias Road was acquired from the federal government.  The main building houses a microscope lab, reptile room, large classroom, and office space.  Other buildings used in current instructional programs include the old library which has been transformed into a classroom, the bird bus used for bird watching activities, the butterfly gazebo, and the newly completed outdoor education classroom.  The instructional program for the 2014-2015 school year includes field trips and curriculum appropriate for 2nd and 5th grade student field trips.

Currently the RHEC is opened from August through June according to the academic calendar of the School District of Escambia County, Florida.  During those months it is opened Monday through Friday for educational field trips by appointment only.  RHEC is not open to the public.
