Flamingo Gardens

Students and scouts can learn about Florida’s rich ecosystems using the wildlife sanctuary to observe different habitats and animals. Program topics include wetlands, birds, natural history and native plants, and more. During a guided nature walk, groups may see animals like bobcats, bears, alligators, and otters in the sanctuary. Some programs may have groups record their findings during a writing exercise, participate in bird and animal identification, make a nature craft, or plant something to take home. Tours also include a narrated tram ride. Flamingo Gardens is home to 200-year old Live Oaks, and the 1933 Wray Home Museum.
