Exploration

Recreation, Entertainment and All Things That Provide an Elevated Park Experience

With more than 2,475,000 square acres between Florida’s four national parks, there are seemingly endless outdoor adventures to explore.

While we work to ensure the vitality of the flora and fauna throughout the parks, we know that the future of these public lands is really in the hands of those who visit them.

By the time visitors leave, we want them to feel as if they’re official champions of these national parks, eager to tout their tremendous natural and wild encounters to everyone they know.

To that end, we work with each park to curate the most elevated exploration experiences possible. Among other things, we help to maintain backcountry campsites, give high school students the opportunity to hunt for undiscovered fungi, welcome stargazers to make the most of our dark South Florida skies and we definitely get plenty of feet wet with our swamp stomps.

Whether it’s personal immersion, direct engagement or relatable education, when we develop visitor programming, it’s more than simply playtime in the parks, it’s recreation that leads to resolve. We only hope to be able to provide more opportunities for visitors to “find their park” in the future.
