Mission Statement

Managing fish and wildlife for their long-term well-being and the benefit of people.

Description

The Chinsegut Wildlife and Environmental Area and Nature Center (CWEA) in Hernando County, of Central Florida is unique in the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commissionà ¢à  à  s (FWC) wildlife management system, as it is the only area managed specifically with the goal of providing conservation education programs to the public. The CWEA is composed of two tracts. The 408-acre Nature Center Tract contains rolling sandhills and scenic Mays Prairie, hiking trails and boardwalks, and a 49-person capacity Nature Center. The 420- acre Big Pine tract also contains hiking trails, is open to the public anytime and has the distinction of being one of the largest contiguous (and the southern-most) tracts of old-growth longleaf pine in Florida. The diverse natural communities of the CWEA provide habitats attractive to many wildlife species (including several that are endangered or species of special concern).
