The Factory

The Florida Wildlife Corridor Foundation’s headquarters is now located in St Petersburg’s newest arts enclave, “The Factory.” These repurposed buildings and warehouses, 91,000 square feet in size, are home to numerous artists and organizations, as well as the Fairgrounds St. Pete, an immersive art experience. We’re excited to partner with internationally recognized artist, Ernesto Maranje, to showcase the beauty of wild Florida on our front entryway. This continues our legacy of engaging influential artists and communicators throughout the state to promote our vital mission.
