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.
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.
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
