Biophilia during the school year
Every fourth and seventh grader from South Walton visits the Biophilia Center, free of charge, for a four-day adventure during the school year.  It is a valuable and unique community resource and provides local students teachable moments outside of the classroom.Teachers see the excitement and level of participation increase when students get to learn with hands-on activities and act like true scientists out in the field. We also have more and more students and public visitors each year and every year we add new and exciting programs.

What’s new at Biophilia?
Exhibits, and animal ambassadors keep it exciting around here! Our Flight Zone is geared towards the little ones including a giant bird nest, and other activities that focus on bird habitats, bird adaptations, and you can even dress up as a bird!

Coming Soon
Next Summer, Biophilia will introduce the public to its newest addition, an overnight camp known as Camp Longleaf. Sponsors are currently needed for cabins, stone campfire pavers, benches, etc.
