Located 6 miles north of Brooksville, Chinsegut Conservation Center Tract covers 408 of the 850 acres comprising Chinsegut Wildlife and Environmental Area (WEA).

Chinsegut is managed by the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission and is funded by the Pittman-Robertson Program and state legislative appropriations. The Conservation Center is the only educational facility operated by the Commission's Public Access Services Office.

Chinsegut WEA is home to many wildlife species and wildlife viewing is available throughout the year. Catch a glimpse of gopher tortoise, white-tailed deer, bobcat, sandhill crane or turkey from the trails or at May’s Prairie.
