The Florida Nature and Culture Center was built as a facility for SGI-USA members to refresh their spirit and determination to practice Nichiren Daishonin's Buddhism. As SGI President Daisaku Ikeda commented: "There should be time for sleeping and time for chanting. People should leave energized and filled with hope."

The FNCC is located on 125 acres of restored wetlands surrounding a lake. Here amid the Live Oak trees and Sabal Palms native to the Florida landscape, discussions on philosophy and everyday life experience take place in a relaxing atmosphere. For more information about the FNCC, go here.
