Long before the first shovel was planted in the site of what is now Gumbo Limbo Nature Center, the real work began. Working tirelessly with the City of Boca Raton, The Greater Boca Raton Beach and Park District, and Friends of Gumbo Limbo, Mr. Gilbert turned his dream into a reality.
As we celebrate our 35th anniversary with our Eco-Watch Lecture series, don’t miss this important evening. Join us on Tuesday, January 28 and hear about how it all came to be from the man who made it happen!
