Biophilia Center

The E.O. Wilson Biophilia Center is located in Freeport, Florida, about 30 minutes from the Coffeen Nature Preserve.  The Biophilia Center is a state-of-the-art environmental education center nestled within a 55,000-acre wildlife preserve called Nokuse Plantation. 

Founded in 2009 by conservationists M.C. and Stella Davis, the E.O. Wilson Biophilia Center educates, on average, over 120 local students per day during the school year free of charge and thousands of public visitors throughout each summer and during special events.  The Biophilia Center’s mission is to educate students and visitors on the importance of biodiversity, to promote sustainability, and to encourage conservation, preservation, and restoration.  Guests leave the Center feeling like a naturalist.

The Biophilia Center complements the Coffeen Nature Preserve for making a positive impact for the environment through like-minded practices.  Partnerships for the well-being of nature is the bedrock of success for future generations to be environmentally aware and responsible.   Check out the E.O.
