Guess who's having a BIG birthday this year?

The Big Cypress National Preserve is turning 40 this year. The South Florida National Parks Trust and our partners at the National Park Service plan to celebrate over two days in December with a birthday bash in downtown Naples on Friday December 5 and an outdoor festival at the Big Cypress Swamp Welcome Center on Saturday December 6. Save the date and plan to join in December for both events! To learn more, click here.

Welcome to the South Florida National Parks Trust!

The South Florida National Parks Trust was founded in 2002 to improve the quality of life in South Florida by supporting the national parks that define our landscape and enrich our culture...

  • Everglades National Park
  • Biscayne National Park
  • Dry Tortugas National Park
  • Big Cypress National Preserve

The Trust is working to ensure that more people – especially children – have an opportunity to experience these remarkable places and learn about the resources these parks protect.

The Trust relies on the generous support of private individuals, corporations and foundations to accomplish its mission.
