What’s all the Quacking About? The Great Duck Derby!

What’s all the Quacking About? The Great Duck Derby!

The next Great Duck Derby scheduled for February 27, 2016.

This year we had a slightly damp day in the great outdoors at the Great Duck Derby!

Mead Garden thanks the Duck Derby sponsors who made the day possible. We also thank the many, many volunteers who helped organize and run the event activities! Special kudos to MC Frank Hamner, who called the races and shamelessly shared the best duck jokes ever. We also welcomed this year's special guest, Orlando Sentinel columnist Scott Maxwell, a big Duck Derby and Mead Garden fan.

Proceeds from the derby support youth nature programming at Mead Botanical Garden including Mead's Young Naturalist Summer Day Camp. 



Many Thanks to Our 2015 Flock of Generous Sponsors!
