Say Hello to The Alliance!
After the year that 2020 was, we knew we wanted to start this year off fresh.
But besides it being a new year, the scope of work that our organization has done within Florida’s four national parks has continuously expanded over years, reaching from the depths of the Atlantic Ocean to the inner reaches of the cypress domes and even into classrooms around the country.
As we grow, we need a name that will grow with us. Because we are now more than just a trust and, honestly, we always have been.
So please say hello to The Alliance for Florida’s National Parks.
We remain the official philanthropic partner for Florida’s four national parks: Everglades, Dry Tortugas and Biscayne National Parks, as well as Big Cypress National Preserve. But we have become more focused in the work that we do within the parks, now based upon five key pillars: community engagement, environmental education, exploration, preservation & protection, and restoration.
As The Alliance, we unite those who champion the safeguarding of these spaces, ensuring that Florida remains natural, wild and – most importantly – accessible for all. With this new, more inclusive name, we hope to have a greater influence within the Florida community and beyond – creating more lifelong allies for these public lands.
Together, we give the national parks the extra boost that they need to ensure that our state’s greatest natural ecosystems are preserved and protected for generations to come.
Take a look around our new website to see what else is new and to get more involved as an ally for Florida’s national parks!
