Pasco County’s Cross Bar Ranch Environmental Education Center is located on a 12,500-acre well field in north-central Pasco County, Florida. This facility is ideal for activities involving wetlands ecology, deciduous forests and prairie environments. Cross Bar is home to 17 wells that produce 22.5 million gallons of water per day to contribute to the region’s drinking water supply and are managed by Tampa Bay Water, which serves Pasco, Pinellas and Hillsborough counties.
Cross Bar Ranch Environmental Education Center currently supports our Middle School environmental program (Watershed Ambassador Program) for all 7th graders within the district and is also used for EcoResearchers high school programs.
