The Florida Nature and Culture Center (FNCC), located in the peaceful Everglades, opened in 1996 as a facility for SGI-USA members to refresh their spirit and determination to practice Nichiren 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 Toda Lake. Here amid the Live Oak trees and Sabal Palms native to the Florida landscape, discussions on Buddhism, philosophy and everyday life take place in a relaxing atmosphere. Members from across the country enjoy bicycle rides throughout the grounds, swimming in the pool and incredible food.
