Join the SFNPT on Saturday June 18 for a free, ranger-guided bus tour to the historic Flamingo district inside Everglades National Park as part of our Vote Your Park campaign to restore the Flamingo Visitor Center. Learn about the “Mission 66” program that transformed Flamingo in the 1960s and current plans to restore Flamingo to its former glory as a gateway to Florida Bay and the Everglades.

The ranger-guided bus tour is free and includes a boxed launch, but space is limited. Reservations required. Reserve Your Tickets Here
