Lake  Ed Yarborough Nature Center  Morning at Geneva Wilderness Area

The Geneva Wilderness Area is a 180 acre site that lies to the south of the Geneva community on SR 426 in East Seminole County. The Geneva site contains an array of native Florida plant communities from Mixed Hardwood Swamp and Mesic Flatwoods, Scrubby Flatwoods and a lake system, all supporting an equally diverse collection of wildlife. A hike through these habitats can reward visitors with sighting gopher tortoise, white-tailed deer, wild turkey, grey fox, sandhill cranes, and other wading birds.  One primitive campsite is available for reservation.

The Ed Yarborough Nature Center at the Geneva Wilderness Area was established with the mission to learn about nature by experiencing it. It features exhibits and displays that highlight the diverse ecology of Central Florida. This is a facility that hosts environmental education and outreach for schools, private and public programs, and is available by reservation for  meetings. Amenities include a nature center/meeting room with exhibits and live displays, A/V equipment and screen, kitchen facilities (without stove), and restrooms.   For information on fees, please contact 407-349-0959.
