WHAT TO DO AT GUMBO LIMBO NATURE CENTER in BOCA RATON
Founded in 1984, Gumbo Limbo’s mission is to increase public awareness of coastal and marine ecosystems through research, education, preservation and conservation. Stroll through the butterfly garden, climb the observation tower located on the winding boardwalk through coastal hammock, sit in a Chiki hut, visit the saltwater tanks brimming with marine life, including sea turtles, fish, sharks and rays and take pictures in our sea turtle garden with 7 giant turtles.
Marine and coastal environmental education for the community is provided through classes, workshops, lectures, field trips and research. Programs are given for children, adults and families. Sea Turtle Research includes information on tracking them and observing their nests in the area. Closed on Christmas and New Years Day, the Center is open 361 days a year, Monday thru Saturday from 9 am – 4 pm, Sunday from Noon to 4 pm. For information, call 561-338-1473.
