Flamingo Gardens, Botanical Gardens and Everglades Wildlife Sanctuary. Our Botanical Gardens is a showcase for over 3000 species of rare and exotic, tropical, subtropical, and native plants. Our Arboretum contains some of the largest trees in the state of Florida. The Everglades Wildlife Sanctuary gives residence to permanently injured and non-releasable birds and animals, and is home to the largest collection of Florida native wildlife- including alligators, bear, bobcats, eagles, otters, panthers, peacocks and flamingos! And we have a volunteer group specific to orchids. The Orchidteers have attached over 1,000 orchids in the front 30 acres and 1500 Native Broward County Orchids in the back 30 acres - the Everglades area of the garden.
