Flamingo Gardens

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 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 (1 each) for Monday morning, Friday afternoon, Saturday afternoon and Sunday morning. If a weekly commitment isn't for you, we also have opportunities for as needed substitutes.

Please feel free to contact me with any questions. volunteers@flamingogardens.org
