(Note: The sun was shining directly down onto the panel, so I had to angle my view so I wouldn't get a glare.)

The education center is worth visiting. The kiosk is to the right side of the sidewalk that goes up to it. Just make sure that you visit when the visitor center is open to the public, which is Tuesday to Saturday. Otherwise the fence into the park will be locked tight.
For some reason, the Rookery Bay folks felt the need to tack on signs for NOAA and DEP on the side of the kiosk. It's the only one that I've seen that way.

The trail that goes over Henderson Creek also has some good signage.
