Have a few hours to give each week but not sure about volunteering onsite?
If you can sew and have a machine, consider helping us make masks!
Volunteers have been sewing simple, surgical-style cotton masks that we sell in our gift shop. Flamingo Gardens provides the material and elastic, as well as a pattern to follow (or you can use your own favorite pattern). Work at your own pace and help us raise money to maintain our Wildlife Sanctuary and the 94 year old botanical gardens. Masks have been a hit and are selling out weekly!
Volunteers that contribute 100 hours or more in a 12 month period will receive a complimentary Flamingo Gardens family membership.
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.
