The Sawgrass Nature Center & Wildlife Hospital is a private non-profit 501 (c) (3) organization. The 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 go to observe birds, mammals, reptiles and native plants and learn to appreciate the beauty of nature in South Florida.
The Center is currently has 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.
