Located on a biologically diverse 320-acre wetland nature park in the heart of urban Bellevue, WA, Mercer Slough Environmental Education Center is a collaboration between the City of Bellevue and Pacific Science Center. It provides a grand entrance to the Mercer Slough Nature Park.
Completed in October 2008, the complex features classrooms, a visitor center, a community building and a "tree house," all sustainably built. The City of Bellevue and Pacific Science Center offer year-round education about wetlands and nature for adults, youth and families at the center.
This partnership brings year-round education and interpretation of freshwater ecosystems, wetland ecology, environmental stewardship and the effect of urban development to adults, youth and families. MSEEC is the keystone of interpretive facilities and programs for the City of Bellevue and serves as the Eastside focal point for the Pacific Science Center. The MSEEC provides classrooms for environmental education, a visitor center for interpretation and a community building for rentals, community gatherings and environmental programs.
