The purpose of the Oakland Nature Preserve is to offer visitors an opportunity to explore, understand and cherish Central Florida's cultural and natural heritage. The Preserve is located in Oakland, Florida and open 365 days a year. The beautiful wooden boardwalk, upland nature trails and Environmental Education Center are free. Donations are greatly appreciated and allow the Preserve to be open as often as possible. For a guided nature walk or group tour we have a charge of $3.00 per person.
