Mission Statement

Preserve and maintain the native flora and fauna within the ecosystem. Instill knowledge and understanding of the interrelationships in the natural world with particular emphasis on water, wetlands and wildlife. Teach stewardship and promote conservation of our natural environment.

Description

The Center has a 1,000 foot long boardwalk extending into Trout Lake, interpretive trails, a museum/classroom center (Charles Newell Hall) and an environmental education center (housing a meeting room, library and gift shop).

Trout Lake Nature Center is unique in Lake County, being the only site where persons of all ages can learn about plants, trees, birds and animals that are native to central Florida. From 2010-2011 4219 school children visited as part of their science education and 3609 adults and families participated in environmental educational programs. Trout Lake is proud of our 9342 volunteer hours logged and we could not function without volunteers.
