The Archbold Biological Station (ABS) is a study institute. It was customary in 1941 by Richard Archbold. The Station backings 19 federally listed exposed types, including the Sand Skink (Neoseps reynoldsi) and 13 endemic herb species. The station and surroundings are open to people, who must catalogue at the main office. There are some displays about the property and its history, a video about the biodiversity and conservation of the Lake Wales Ridge, a 1/2 mile environment trail and picnic stands. Nature and ecological instruction programs are offered for schools, adults and specialty assemblages.
