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.
