Roy Hyatt Environmental Center Donations

Donations Always Appreciated!

Below is a list of supplies we use on a regular basis. You can drop off any of these items at RHEC Monday - Friday between 8:00 AM and 2:00 PM. Your donations are greatly appreciated.

Why Donate to RHEC?

"There is no substitute for direct experiences in nature.  No books, online course, website, or lecture can take the place of touching, seeing, smelling for yourself. …But time spent entranced by nature's spell generates a sense of wonder, awe, and humble perspective."  This was stated by Richard Louv in his book, Last Child in the Woods

Today the world is moving toward exactly what Mr. Louv spoke about, virtual school, internet, online everything; but every child should experience nature, not just the park down the street, but real nature.  The Roy Hyatt Environmental Center gives children this opportunity; those students who might not ever get that chance any other time in their life!  Each school year we educate approximately 12,000 people, either on site, or through “off-site” programs.  The RHEC gives students and adults the opportunity to explore 120 acres of pine forest in Cantonment!  Who knows how many of them have never had that opportunity before!  You know, one of the best parts of my day every single day is seeing things for the first time through a child’s eye!

At Roy Hyatt our first priority is the Escambia County School District 2nd and 5th grade students, beyond that we allow any group who would like to schedule a visit or “off-site” presentation to do so.  We offer a variety of engaging hands on programs which immerse students in nature. 

Your donations will help to support our endeavors - supplies and monetary donations will help to offset costs allowing us to continue to afford children and adults this awesome opportunity!

It is the hope of RHEC that with your help, the children who visit our facility are not "the last children in the woods".


Thank you for your assistance!
