Calendar of Events for Broward County Parks
Our nature centers have their own Monthly Calendar pages. Consult them and the monthly Highlights and Nearby Nature electronic newsletters for additional information.

Preregistration is often required and may be available online. Call individual parks to confirm and for fee information. Florida sales tax is also now applicable to many program and facility fees, although the regular weekend and holiday gate fee of $1.50/person (children 5 and under free) at regional parks is not affected.
 
Adverse weather conditions may affect outdoor activities. Call ahead to confirm that programming will still take place.
