The Green Belt of the São Francisco do Sul Terminal has a forest nursery, nature trails, a reception house, a library with publications on environmental education, and an ecological museum. The project maintains a program aimed at students of primary and secondary education, with lessons about the environment. The site also has a greenhouse for the production of seedlings for the Green Belt, the community, and visitors.
