It's Gator Week at Wild Florida! - Polk County Moms

Gator Week

May 24th – May 29th

Florida knows a few things about gators

Learn more about Florida’s most recognizable, yet misunderstood animals… the American alligator!

There are a lot of misconceptions and myths about alligators. Wild Florida has dedicated a full week to teaching others about these reptiles through demonstrations and experiences during Gator Week. To make this available to all Wild Florida is offering admission for almost nothing – you are asked to donate your spare change as admission price.
