Sawgrass recreation park was previously a fishing camp. Over the next 30 years it transformed from a fishing camp, into a one boat airboat attraction in the 1970s and finally became one of south floridas top destinations for visitors in the new millennium. Since 2005 the park has expanded the exhibit areas to allow for the adoption and rescue of more reptiles and mammals. Sawgrass has also expanded community relations and forged partnerships with local schools to educate students about the florida everglades. New habitats are underway in the exhibit areas to accommodate the growing numbers of rescued reptiles. The familys philosophy is not only to make each visitors experience a meaningful one, but also to educate the public on how fragile and important it is to preserve and protect our beautiful everglades.
