We are so blessed with natural beauty, abundant sunshine, and solid infrastructure that its easy to forget we are surrounded by three National Parks and one National Preserve: Everglades, Biscayne, Dry Tortugas, and Big Cypress, in that order.

All four facilities come under the management umbrella of the South Florida National Parks Trust — and they have a new website they’d love to have you visit:

Be sure to check each of the parks’ features and offerings — and sign up for the newsletter.
