Audubon Resource Center at Lettuce Lake Park

ARC at the Park

The Tampa Audubon Society, in cooperation with the Hillsborough County Parks, Recreation and Conservation Department, has established the Audubon Resource Center at Lettuce Lake Regional County Park (ARC at the PARK) located at 6920 E. Fletcher Ave, Tampa, FL 33637. The Resource Center was created to help foster a culture of conservation and an environmental ethic in the Tampa Bay region and to encourage community involvement in the Audubon mission. For more information, contact the ARC Coordinator.

ARC at the Park:

  • Provides a variety of environmental educational programs and field trips for all ages.

  • Displays wildlife native to the Hillsborough River watershed.

  • Assists park visitors with wildlife and plant identification.


WE HAVE AN URGENT NEED FOR VOLUNTEERS to staff the ARC, represent Tampa Audubon, greet visitors and answer questions. A friendly disposition is all that's required; knowledge of birds, animals, plants and trees is a plus! Orientation and training provided. The building is wheelchair accessible, air conditioned with restrooms and water fountains. Volunteers work 4-hr shifts on weekend afternoons and/or holidays once (or more) each month. Please email the ARC Coordinator if you are interested. If you know anyone that would like to volunteer, please share this with them.

Osher Lifetime Learning Institute (OLLI) at USF

The Osher Lifelong Learning Institute at USF (OLLI-USF) is a membership-based organization dedicated to providing intellectual stimulation, social interaction, service opportunities, and outreach to adults in the community over 50. There are no grades, no tests and no pressure in OLLI. They welcome every adult learner regardless of previous college experience.

Join us each year for Natural Hillsborough: An Audubon Adventure, a series of lectures by local Audubon experts offered to the community. Typically, these lectures are held at Lettuce Lake Park and include a 1-hr walking tour. From 2020 to 2022, classes were held online via Zoom. But we are now back to in-person classes! More information can be found here. View past lectures here.
