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.

Sawgrass Nature Center and Wildlife Center is not very big and is not like big county nature centers that have trails, but they do have a charming property with habitats for animals that are native to Florida's natural wildlife. My wide and I found it to be a great couple of hours of time spent! And if you decide to donate when you visit, which is entirely optional as there is usually no fee, know its going to a good cause! The organization does a lot if good taking in injured wildlife and helping to rehabilitate them. The center also provides a lot of educational resources/ programming geared towards wildlife and nature...also a very kid friendly place!
