To our Biophilia friends and family,


Upon guidance from our local school districts, we have cancelled all in-person public programs at the E.O. Wilson Biophilia Center for the remainder of 2020.  Educating local students about science and nature is our top priority, so we are concentrating our efforts on providing virtual lessons to our local school systems, as well as maintaining our campus and caring for our beloved animal ambassadors. We are updating our technology and creating new and engaging virtual content for local students in order to effectively provide science instruction from afar. Stay tuned, as the Biophilia team is planning public/member virtual encounters for the near future.  We are doing all we can to adapt to current times, keep our mission strong, and build upon our 11 years of success.


Since we can’t yet welcome you at the Biophilia Center, we encourage you to embrace “biophilia” – a love of life and the living world – at home. Get outside and take advantage of the fall weather.  Take a hike and keep your eyes out for critters.  A great list of state parks in the local area can be found here.  Snap some photos and tag us on Facebook and Instagram - we love to see you bio-feelin’ it!


Thank you for being patient with us.  We look forward to the time when we can once again welcome students, campers, and guests to the Biophilia Center and Camp Longleaf. Until then, please contact us through email with any questions you may have, sign up for our email list to get updates sent to your inbox, and follow us on Facebook and Instagram to stay up to date on all things Biophilia!
