Flamingo Gardens is a botanical treasure and a wildlife sanctuary, and is visited by guests from around the country and the world. We currently need friendly volunteers with a love of history to give tours to guests at our Historic Wray Home. This is a great opportunity to meet people in a beautiful environment.
Wray Home guides should be able to commit to a weekly schedule of one morning from 10:30 to 1:30, or one afternoon from 1:30 to 4:30. We are open 7 days a week. Help is also needed with the historic archives, researching and inventorying the collection.
Currently seeking volunteers for Sunday afternoons, Monday mornings, Tuesday mornings and afternoons, Wednesday afternoons, Thursday mornings and afternoons, and Friday mornings. If a weekly commitment isn't for you, we also have opportunities for as-needed substitutes.
Please feel free to contact me us any questions. Volunteers@flamingogardens.org
It is the intent of Flamingo Gardens to depict and maintain for posterity the natural and cultural heritage of South Florida and the Everglades by preserving and displaying, in a living museum, an outstanding collection of tropical and sub-tropical plants, birds native to the area presented in natural habitats, cultural artifacts of early South Florida settlers and native peoples. These exhibits are maintained and presented in order to encourage environmental awareness in visiting tourists, area residents and school children, with a mission to increase knowledge and interest in the agricultural and horticultural history of our region; to provide a repository for endangered plant and bird species and a living library of specific plants and animals available for research and education and to breed and release in the wild, native South Florida birds.
Flamingo Gardens is a botanical garden and Everglades wildlife sanctuary housing permanently injured native species. It also has tours of historic Wray Home.
