In 2014, a group of local residents formed the Bonita Wonder Gardens Inc., a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization. With generous financial assistance, in the form of a loan from the City of Bonita Springs, the new organization was able to purchase the property and business assets in April 2015, saving it from potential commercial development. Thus began a new chapter for this beloved historic attraction.

While preserving the very best of the 80-year old cultural icon, the non-profit is restoring wildlife enclosures, nurturing the botanical beauty of the property, adding education programs, offering volunteer opportunities and further engaging the community to enjoy this jewel in downtown Bonita Springs. Today, the Gardens are home to rescued birds and reptiles nestled among the old growth plants.
