Restock The Flock!

What would Sunken Gardens be without flamingos? Previous owners, the Turner family, brought 17 of these beautiful birds to the Gardens in 1956 and sadly, only two of this original flock remain. Flamingos Forever was created to raise funds to "re-stock the flock!" and thanks to various efforts, $43,000 of the $60,000 goal has been raised so far. Anyone can help by sending a tax deductible contribution to Sunken Gardens, Flamingos Forever Fund, 1825 4th Street N., 33704. You can even purchase naming rights to a flamingo in exchange for a $3,000 donation.
