Gore Nature Center

We are Naples-based 501c3 nonprofit dedicated to preserving and protecting Southwest Florida’s ecologically sensitive landscape from the devastating impact of over-development. Our mission is to encourage the conservation of critical habitats through environmental education and nature-inspired experiences.
We own and operate the 10-acres Gore Nature Education Center in the Golden Gate Estates area of Naples, providing the perfect setting for exploration and nature education. We invite you to come experience its wonders.

Upcoming Programs and Events

Second Sundays at the Preserve

The Gore Nature Education Center is open the Second Sunday of each month from noon to 4:00 p.m. Come walk our trails, visit our pollinator gardens, and enjoy our beautiful 10-acre “Old Florida” preserve. Local experts will be sharing their nature knowledge on topics ranging from beekeeping and native plants to bears and panthers. No reservations required.
