Ocala to Osceola: Operation Restoration

In partnership with the North Florida Land Trust

Our upcoming O2O Expedition will feature three veterans who will undertake an exploration of the Florida Wildlife Corridor from the Ocala to the Osceola National Forests. The core of the Expedition will involve a 4-day journey which includes paddling of the Oklawaha River as well as biking/hiking segments through the Florida National Scenic Trail which ends at Camp Blanding. The expedition will feature health/wellness opportunities as well as the compatibility of military installations. It will also highlight extensive tracts of timber lands that are critical Florida Forever properties, as well as native wildlife and waterways.

O2O Wildlife Corridor is a 100 mile long, 1.6-million-acre landscape of public and private lands that connect the Ocala and Osceola National Forests.

Our Expeditions

Protecting Florida’s Most Precious Lands & Waters

Our expeditions and subsequent films in 2012 and 2015 laid the foundation for this work with a robust media campaign to share the Corridor concept and vision. Since then, we’ve revisited different chokepoints along the Corridor that are in danger of severing the Corridor forever.

Each expedition we embark on has been tailored to better understand the landscape of the Corridor. We seek out scientists, land managers, ranchers, farmers, and the outdoor recreational community who know the land and depend on it. At its core, the Corridor is a story of connections, and our expeditions are the embodiment of a search to uncover the most important connections that can mean the difference between preservation or loss of the global treasure that is the Florida Wildlife Corridor. We capture the journey of each expedition through documentaries to share the stories of wild Florida with the public.
