Friends of Okeeheelee Nature Center


Return to Okeeheelee

The Friends of Okeeheelee Nature Center, Inc. is designed to promote an appreciation of our natural world to the general public through educational programs that reflect Okeeheelee Nature Center's commitment to the stewardship of Florida's natural resources. This is done by raising monies for the enhancement and diversification of programs, assisting staff with recruitment of volunteers, training programs, and publicity. We invite you to support the work of the center as a non-profit corporation by becoming a member. All monies collected are used to benefit the Center and its programs. Your annual tax-deductible contribution funds materials for service and management projects, exhibits, and other educational pursuits.

Members receive invitations to all special happenings and a 10% discount at the gift shop.
