Support Your Park

Here are just a few important ways you can help support Canaveral National Seashore:

While visiting, please follow the park guidelines outlined on the blue card you receive at the entrance station.

Bookstore - Our bookstore, located in the visitor center at Apollo Beach, offers many exciting and informative souvenir items which will enhance your experience and provide a tangible record of your visit. Because the park receives a percentage of the profits from the sales of these items, your patronage is an excellent way to support our efforts.

- Of course, there's no better way to help out than to pitch in. For more information on the volunteer program, please contact Ranger Avia Woulard. Volunteers-In-Parks brochure (6.55mb)
