Oakland Nature Preserve (ONP) was established in 1997 as a 501(c)3 nonprofit corporation, and began the daunting task of gathering the resources necessary to complete the land acquisition. With a grant from Florida Communities Trust (FCT), contributions by SJRWMD and the Florida Department of Environmental Protection, and over one-half million dollars in donations, ONP was able to complete the land acquisition in 1999.
Once the property purchase was completed, the ecologic restoration work began. The site had been used for citrus farming for many years, and the goal was to restore the land to its original sandhill ecology. As the restoration work began, exotic species were removed and native plant species were planted. Simultaneously, gopher tortoises were introduced and as the plant community improved, native bird and mammal species began to reappear.
The ONP Board soon realized there was more to teach visitors about than just Lake Apopka's restoration progress, so the founders decided to create an environmental education center and expand their mission:
To promote an understanding of the fragile balance between mankind and the environment by educating visitors about Lake Apopka basin's ecosystems and cultural history, and by restoring and conserving the lands within the Preserve.
Family Reptiles was founded in 2007 by Scott and Elizabeth Wisneski. This adventure did not start for dreams of fame and fortune, but because our youngest daughter wanted a new family member. It’s amazing how one King Snake can change your world. We all fell in love with that snake and the “Addiction” had begun! Today everyone of our reptiles has a place in our heart.
In 2011, our founders, Daryl and Tracy Kirby made the decision to purchase 174 acres of land with the intent to build an educational outreach organization called the Kirby Family Farm. The vision was to erect an area where children of all ages could have a unique place to visit and learn about yesterday, while preparing themselves for the future. First, they rescued a historical locomotive that dates back to the late 1800’s. Lovingly restored by volunteers, that abandoned train is now the centerpiece of Kirby Family Farm giving rides to thousands of children and guests each year. As Kirby Family Farm develops, terminally ill children, special needs children, foster children as well as other at risk children continue to be a special focus of our organization. On June 23, 2014, Kirby Family Farm was granted our 501c3 status. Today we offer high quality educational, historical, recreational, agricultural, and community enrichment programs through our hands-on historical museum and agricultural experiences we provide. Kirby Family Farm is located in Williston, Fl. Family is our middle name because our goal is that everyone feels like family when they are visiting.
