Botanical Gardens & EVERGLADES Wildlife Sanctuary


Each day Flamingo Gardens presents live presentations at the Everglades Amphitheater featuring Florida native wildlife. Both fun and informative, the shows present a variety of wildlife such as birds of prey, mammals, and reptiles, and their relationships with the environment.

All Wildlife Encounter Shows are free with admission to Flamingo Gardens.

Wildlife Encounters are presented daily at 11:30, 1:30, and 3:30 pm (weather permitting) at the Wildlife Encounter Outdoor Ampitheater.
