February 2016 – The SFNPT has two Experience Your Backyard outings for members in March:
COLD WAR HISTORY: A special ranger-led tour of the Nike Missile Base inside Everglades National Park on Saturday March 5 at 10 AM. Flash back to the Cuban Missile Crisis during a special two-hour tour of the former Army base, one of the best preserved relics of the Cold War in South Florida.
NIGHT SKY WONDERS: Later the same day (March 5) in Big Cypress, the SFNPT hosts a special reception and ranger talk on star-gazing for members. The SFNPT program starts at 6 PM at the Big Cypress Welcome Center, followed by the preserve’s own Star Party at 8 PM (the final Star Party of the season).
Both programs are free for members but space limited. Contact the SFNPT at 305-665-4769 to reserve space. Not a member? Not a problem. Memberships begin at $50 for an individual or family. Become a member today and then join us in March!
