Mary N. Porter Learning CENTER

Learning Center funding thermometer graph. Image text: Goal, $450,000. Now Raised, $237,751.52 as of June 18, 2019. Please help us reach our goal of $450,000!

With heavy use, the ravages of time, and damage by Hurricane Irma, our decades-old meeting room has become structurally unsound and is no longer fit for public use. It must be replaced…and soon!

Thanks to your generous help, Flamingo Gardens has raised over $1.4 million towards a new and upgraded Learning Cnter to serve the 30,000 plus school children visiting on field trips, provide much-needed classroom space for our ecological programming, and multu-purpose meeting space for the many groups and organizations we serve. 


The Flamingo Gardens Board of Trustees has approved the relocation of the new Learning Center to the front entrance area. It will be incorporated with Phase I of a new Welcome Center campus and will now be called The Mary N. Porter Learning Center.

The move is in response to the concerns raised during the permitting process to build on the former Meeting Room site- specifically the need to address fire truck access, proximity to a fire hydrant, parking, and night-time safety issues associated with the former site.

Relocating the building to the front entrance area provides:

  • the desired access for fire trucks and fire hydrants​
  • adequate parking for guests
  • safer access and more security for evening classes and meetings.


By incorporating the Learning Center with Phase I of the new Welcome Center campus, we will now have the room, and the funds, to build a larger multi-purpose classroom space and larger ADA compliant bathrooms to more fully meet our needs.


The primary purpose of the Learning Annex continues to be to host the ecological education programs for tens of thousands of students, as well as meetings and classes for thousands of adults. 


​The construction schedule of this project will have to be adjusted while we revise the drawings for the new site and go through the necessary permitting process and zoning approval with the Town of Davie. We anticipate demolition and groundbreaking to occur in December of 2020 and we aim to be completed by November of 2021. Read more about our Capital Campaign
