Our Mission

To educate students and the public on the importance of biodiversity, to promote sustainability, and to encourage conservation, preservation, and restoration of our ecosystems.

The E.O. Wilson Biophilia Center offers environmental education for 4th and 7th grade students as well as high school students in Walton County and the surrounding counties.  We educate over 6,000 students each year FREE of charge. Our facility is considered to be an extension of the public school system's classroom, as we are their science education project-based learning facility, the place where schooling becomes applicable. Combining all student activities, member events, and public programs, the Biophilia Center's community outreach serves tens of thousands each year.
