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. Book online HERE. A large group campsite with large pavilion is also available. Please call 407-665-2211 for more information about booking the large campsite/pavilion combo.

Ed Yarborough Nature Center

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 and parties. Amenities include a nature center/meeting room with exhibits and live displays, A/V equipment and screen, kitchen facilities (without stove), and restrooms.  For more information, please contact 407-665-2211.

Many Natural Lands programs and classes also take place in the Ed Yarborough Nature Center. See this season's schedule of events on our Environmental Education page.
