Stetson Aquatic Center
The Sandra Stetson Aquatic Center is an iconic facility located on 10 acres on beautiful Lake Beresford. Built primarily with a generous gift from Sandra Stetson, the great-granddaughter of the university’s namesake, John B. Stetson, the facility houses the Institute for Water and Environmental Resilience (IWER) Field Station and the University’s rowing teams.
The Field Station features a laboratory, floating and outdoor classrooms, GIS conference room, offices and event space that will allow the Institute to deliver public programs, conduct research, and convene stakeholders to consider policies and practices that affect our water resources.
The Stetson Aquatic Center also received a Volusia County ECHO grant to develop a boardwalk, outdoor classroom, public restroom, canoe/kayak launch as well as the Bartram Gardens and trail, a botanical garden highlighting native Florida plants with interpretive panels commemorating the work of naturalist William Bartram.
