Palatka Water Works


Water Works Environmental Education Center

The Water Works Environmental  Education Center (WWEEC) is owned by the City of Palatka.  The Water Works Committee and volunteers build trails, conduct tours, host field trips and meet regularly to review goals and progress.

The WWEEC is open to the public every Wednesday (from 8:00a.m. – noon) and the 1st Sunday afternoon of each month (1:30p.m.—5p.m.) with volunteers from the Water Works Advisory Group available at the WW Building to answer questions and give guided tours of the facility.

The WWEEC supports the Putnam County and William Bartram trails network by acting as a trail hub, providing access to WW nature trails, identifying Bartram plants through appropriate signage, and displaying exhibits that describe William Bartram’s contribution to natural history exploration of the St. Johns River area.


On Saturday, March 11, more than 30 Florida Power and Light Company (FPL) volunteers visited the Palatka Environmental Center to paint, landscape and make other facility improvements. The event was part of Power to Care Week, an initiative that involves FPL employees and their families and friends in a week of service projects.
