Class Field Trips

Flamingo Gardens Education Department offers a variety of field trips for students, summer campers and other groups. Our programs grow right along with the 26,000 children who visit us each year. We offer a unique opportunity for students to observe and learn about trees, plants, birds, native wildlife and nature using a hands-on approach in our beautiful South Florida environment. It is our mission to foster curiosity, appreciation and a respect for nature in children, while they have fun discovering the world around them.
