Enjoy a chance to marvel at the beauty of the delicate and graceful orchid during the Sawgrass Nature Center & Wildlife Hospital’s Orchid & Plant Festival this weekend.
Held on Saturday, February 25, and Sunday, February 26, from 9:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., the center expects more than 25 orchid, plant, and garden art vendors to attend this year.
Admission is $8 or only $6 if purchased by February 24, and children under five are free. Visitors will also see some of the nature center’s fascinating wildlife ambassadors in the exhibit area and walk-thru aviary, plus visit a live apiary.
All proceeds will benefit the Sawgrass Nature Center and Wildlife Hospital, which provides environmental education programs focused on South Florida’s unique, fragile Everglades and its many resident species. The wildlife hospital also provides expert rehabilitative care to over 900 injured and orphaned native wildlife annually at no cost to the public.
