We are looking for friendly, outgoing individuals with a passion for flora! Learn about specific areas of our facility, and then pass that knowledge on to our guests as they tour your area of the garden. Answer questions and point out the highlights of the garden to those that are not on a formal tour.
Flamingo Gardens is 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 around the world, including Champion trees (the largest trees of their kind in the state).
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 Aviary filled with native Florida birds.
We are looking for plant lovers and gardeners, and those that love out Florida Wildlife to volunteer as guides/docents within the park.
Flamingo Gardens could not survive without volunteers like you. We have wonderful long time volunteers and staff who will 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 x 134 to set up an interview. The Volunteer office is open Tuesday - Saturday from 9:30a - 5:00pm.
We'll work with your schedule.
