Sawgrass Nature Center

Attraction details
Owner description: The SAWGRASS NATURE CENTER & WILDLIFE HOSPITAL is a private non-profit 501 (c) (3) organization. Our Center is located on 5 acres of land in the Sportsplex Park, donated by the City of Coral Springs (adjacent to the Sawgrass Expressway between Sample Road and Royal Palm Blvd.). The Nature Center is a place where people of all ages can come to observe birds, mammals, reptiles and native plants and learn to appreciate the beauty of nature in South Florida. We currently have two buildings on site: a multi-purpose building with a meeting room, nature gift boutique, offices, and restrooms; and the wildlife hospital where wild native animals are treated, rehabilitated, and released back into the wild. Non-releasable and exotic animals & birds will allow a close-up viewing opportunity in the Center's permanent exhibit area. Animals and birds will be housed in natural-looking habitats and aviaries. We also have an outdoor classroom to hold educational programs, lectures, camp, parties, group activities, and to host meetings.

What a terrific healing centre for animal wildlife. Volunteers help to keep Sawgrass Nature Centre and Wildlife Hospital running. They have animals from Wally the alligator to prairie dogs to a loud hawk and everything in between. On each cage a tale is told on how that animal made it to the centre. The Centre is not large, but the hearts there are. Takes about an hour to view the animals. All proceeds go to help injured wildlife.
