The E.O.Wilson Biophilia Center is a non-profit environmental education center with the mission to educated students and visitors on the importance of biodiversity, to promote sustainability, and to encourage conservation, preservation and restoration of ecosystems. 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.

During the school year the Biophilia Center educates, on average, 100 students a day in fourth and seventh grades, Monday through Friday. Students visit the Center FREE of CHARGE for either two or four day programs that are filled with over twenty different environmental science lessons. During the summer months we provide and fun-filled learning experience with public museum days, animal encounters, summer day camps, guided trail hikes, and more!

The Biophilia Center needs our help to continue on their meaningful educational programing while caring, feeding, and housing the many educational animal ambassadors. To support the Biopilia Center: donate, become a monthly or annual patron (member) and come out to fundraising events! Donate today.
