The WWT Nature Museum

Florida's natural history for all visitors to Wekiwa Springs.

 

In early April of 1995 the Wekiva Wilderness Trust began remodeling the old concession stand area, in order to create the park's first visitor center and natural history museum.
The Museum contains wildlife exhibits, natural history, area history and Indian artifacts.

It is entirely the result of volunteer effort and private donations. After volunteers worked two very hard months  the doors opened on May 25, 1995, Memorial Day

The museum was completely funded by the WWT, at no expense to the state. It has been and is currently manned by volunteers.

The wide diversity of plant communities found in Wekiwa Springs State Park provides year-round food and protective cover for equally diverse and abundant animal populations. Each plant community provides food in the form of seeds, nuts, berries and foliage during different seasons. Deer range from the high sandhills and scrub down through the flatwoods to the hammocks and swamps. Gray fox, bobcat, raccoon, opossum and black bear range across the entire park and are not restricted to any one habitat.

Over 85,000 people visited and enjoyed this facility while learning just a little more about Florida.
