Smithsonian Environmental Research Center
The Smithsonian Environmental Research Center (SERC) provides science-based knowledge to meet the environmental challenges of the 21st century. SERC leads research on coastal ecosystems—where the land meets the sea—to inform real-world decisions for wise policies, best business practices, and a sustainable planet. Part of SERC’s mission is to inspire citizens to embrace sustainable stewardship of the Earth and, by engaging the public, get one step closer to that mission. SERC’s campus has trails and programs where visitors can drop in to learn or just enjoy the natural world. Explore the Smithsonian Environmental Research Center on their website.
