Think you’ve explored everything that South Walton has to offer? Well, that’s certainly not the case unless you’ve been to the E.O. Wilson Biophilia Center.

E.O. who and what?

Watch the video below. Harrison Ford will explain it to you. (Seriously.)

Just a few miles north of Choctawhatchee Bay is a truly remarkable educational and environmental facility designed to serve students, academics, scientists and those who are eager to learn more about the world in which we live.

Designed by architect Anthony Vallee, the gorgeous state-of-the-art learning center is nestled in a Longleaf Pine ecosystem, which is considered the 6th most biodiverse area in the continental United States. Unfortunately, less than 2% of it remains intact today. As such, it’s an ideal place from which to educate students on the importance of biodiversity and to encourage conservation, preservation and restoration.

In addition to being the ultimate field trip for students of all ages, this ecological hot spot is also available as a gathering place for scientists who conduct environmental research.

But hey, don’t take our word for it. Watch the video:
