​​​​​Find Paradise - At a Nature Center, Natural Area, or Regional Park ​​

You don't have to travel to exotic places to discover nature — countless opportunities for exploration are available in the familiar territory of your nearby Broward County regional parks, nature centers, and natural areas.

Our staff of naturalists invites you to participate year round in such programs as nature hikes, natural area tours, educational classes, environmental workdays, and other special programs and events. There's something for everyone, from children to adults and senior citizens. Some events are held in partnership with community-based groups and environmental agencies. Volunteer opportunities are also available.

Find your own paradise. If the nature activity you seek is not listed among the programs and events scheduled, please feel free to contact any park or nature center or e-mail us below. Our naturalists are always looking for ways to educate groups about the importance and the wonders of our environment.
