Environmental Center
2985 Osprey Trail Longwood, Florida 32750

The Environmental Center needs our help to keep it's doors open. The first time I visited here was on a 5th grade field trip with my son. There are two portions of the field trip dry day and wet day. I went on the dry day. While there we took a class and visited the Natural History Museum. There are plenty of places to picnic. There are also Trails that wind through 5 natural habitats and lead to an awesome view of Lake Jesup. The classes are reserved for field trips but the trails only will keep you busy.
