The E.O. Wilson Biophilia Center is an environmental facility serving students, teachers and professional audiences. The center is nestled in the Longleaf Pine ecosystem, which is considered the 6th most biodiverse area in the continental U.S. and less than 2% of it remains intact today. As such, it is the perfect place to educate students on the importance of biodiversity and to encourage conservation, preservation and restoration.
Developed by Walton County conservationist and resident, M.C. Davis (recently deceased), on his 49,000-acre conservation land named Nokuse Plantation, the E.O. Wilson Biophilia Center is named after and dedicated to world renowned scientist Dr. Edward O. Wilson.
E.O. Wilson Biophilia Center is supported solely by donations. Your contribution ensures that they are able to continue educating the next generation. Thank you for your consideration.
The E.O. Wilson Biophilia Center is located 6 miles west of 81 in Bruce and 4 miles east of 331 in Freeport on Hwy 20.
