Our Annual March for Parks is designed to provide residents from the under-served communities in S.Fl. the opportunity to experience our South National.Parks & reconnect with Nature. A family event.
What is the issue, problem, or challenge?
The primary objective of our annual event is to engage diverse & historically underrepresented populations in National park visitation, the workforce, as subjects of interpretation, park planning, & park protection & in decision making roles. Our mission is to increase community awareness and participation in the South Florida National Parks among underrepresented & culturally diverse populations.
How will this project solve this problem?
MFP 2011 will bring 100's of citizens from the under-served communities in S. Fl. to Florida's magnificent Biscayne National Parks. Educational activities will be provided, will learn about historical & environmental facts & reconnect with nature.
Potential Long Term Impact
This is our 11th Annual MFP, we know that the long term end result is a deep reconnection with nature. These families want to visit parks again & leave with an understanding of the need to protect our natural resources. this year 500 will participate
