A New Season of Learning Begins in South Florida Parks

November 2015 – Another season of environmental education is underway in South Florida’s national parks. Kids are learning science in Big Cypress, spotting alligators in the Everglades, cleaning beaches in the Dry Tortugas and dipping nets into Biscayne Bay. More than 16,000 school children will visit one of South Florida’s national parks this year on ranger-guided field trips supported by the SFNPT and its donors. If you think that’s a good thing (and we do) and you want to support these programs then mark your calendars for Thursday November 19 and join us online that day for GIVE MIAMI DAY, the annual online giving campaign organized by The Miami Foundation. Make an online donation on 11/19 to the SFNPT and the foundation will match a portion of your gift up to $10,000. Last year’s event raised $5.2 million for local nonprofits in ONE DAY! Anyone can donate but the event lasts for just 24 hours, starting at midnight. We’re asking all our friends to give generously that day to support our national parks and the environmental education programs that provide an adventure in learning for South Florida school kids. All donations must be made online to Give Miami Day with a minimum gift of $25. It’s quick, it’s easy and it feels good! Please join us online on Thursday 11/19 so more kids can explore the Everglades, discover Dry Tortugas, get muddy in Big Cypress and go dipping in Biscayne Bay.
