Florida Botanical Gardens

Bring your group to the Botanical Gardens and spend an afternoon celebrating the beauty of nature! An herb garden, cactus garden, butterfly garden, and both tropical and native plants are a few of the many things your group can see as they explore both scenic and natural landscapes. The natural areas are a great chance to see local wildlife, including turtles, fish, egrets, alligators, and more. The children’s trail is populated with fun exhibits, including a wildlife station, outdoor musical instruments, and a butterfly puzzle that challenges your learners to match the life stages of different butterflies.
