Flamingo Gardens ia a a Botanical Garden and Everglades Wildlife Sanctuary located in West Ft. Lauderdale since the 1930's. We have 60 acres of trees and tropical plants from all over the world.
In our animal sanctuary we take care of permanently injured wildlife and release their offspring into the wild. We have everything from alligators and bobcats to eagles and otters and a bear! We also have a half acre enclosed Aviary filled with Florida birds.
We have 60 acres of tropical and sub-tropical plants from all over the world, including Champion trees (the largest trees of their kind in Florida).
We are looking for plant lovers and gardeners and those who love our Florida Wildlife to volunteer as guides/docents within the park.
Flamingo Gardens cannot survive without volunteers, which is why our volunteers are so important to us. We have wonderful, long time volunteers who will help introduce you to the park and train you in whatever departments most interest you.
If this interests you, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or call (954) 473-2955 to set up an appointment for an interview. The Volunteer Office is open from Wendesday - Sunday.
