Visiting OSBS

As part of our outreach goal, OSBS provides opportunities for life-long learning about the natural world to the broader community of north Florida through volunteer opportunities and group tours. We also provide talks to groups who are interested in learning about OSBS and its mission.

Tour Visits

OSBS provides interpretive and informational tours about the Station for organized groups. These tours provide an opportunity to understand the facilities mission and focus and see some of Florida’s unique habitats and wildlife. The tours are usually limited to 25 visitors and involve a slow and relaxing ride through OSBS in our tour wagon along with stops at unique spots for a short walks to discuss points of interest. Tours for topics such as research, habitat management, birding, and local flora are also available. If your organization is interested in visiting OSBS for a tour, please contact the Station for more information.

In the near future OSBS is planning to have a spring and fall series of tours for the general public. Please keep visiting this page for more information.
