E.O. Wilson Biophilia Center is an educational facility that fosters a love of nature for the members, students, teachers and professionals it serves. The center is nestled in the Longleaf Pine ecosystem, which is considered the 6th most biodiverse area in the continental U.S. Sadly, 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. 
Walton County conservationist and resident, M.C. Davis developed the E.O.Wilson Biophilia Center in 2009 on his 50,000 acre conservation land, Nokuse Plantation. The Center is named after and dedicated to world renowned scientist Dr. Edward O. Wilson, who has made his life-long mission to educate the public about the importance of conserving the world's biodiversity. Dr. Wilson developed the term "biophilia" which literally means "the love of all living things". Become part of the movement at
