Arturo Lara is our Volunteer of the Month. Arturo chose Flamingo Gardens as the recipient of his Eagle Scout project and constructed a new and improved arbor for our Banyan Lawn.
Arturo was very dedicated to his project, checking in with the Volunteer department regularly and double checking on all of his measurements and design to make sure that the finished product was exactly what we needed. Fundraising and organizing his friends and fellow scouts to work on the installation, Arturo demonstrated leadership and organization.
We're very proud of Arturo and congratulate him on attaining the rank of Eagle Scout!

NEW VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITY
Flamingo Gardens Orchidteers
The Flamingo Gardens Orchidteers are a group of volunteers that meet weekly to mount new orchids and care for existing orchids while gaining hands-on experience. Their mission is to develop Florida native and exotic orchid repositories to build awareness, interest, and education at Flamingo Gardens.
Volunteers assist in cataloging, tagging, mounting, fertilizing and watering the vast collection of beautiful species and hybrids located throughout the Arboretum, Wray Lawn, Banyan Lawn, Wildlife area and along the Tram Trail. During the dry season, members also meet on Monday mornings to water the collection. The Orchidteers consist of volunteers from different orchid societies, to Master Gardeners, to orchid aficionados, and novices wanting to learn. Volunteers of all skill levels are welcome to join.
The Orchidteers meet every Thursday at 9:30 am at Flamingo Gardens. If you are interested in joining, please contact the Volunteer Department at:
