The South Florida National Parks Trust
The South Florida National Parks Trust was founded in 2002 to improve the quality of life in South Florida by supporting the national parks that define our landscape and enrich our culture—Everglades National Park, Biscayne National Park and Dry Tortugas National Park in the Florida Keys. Over the past four years, the Trust has funded a series of projects that enhance the visitor experience, promote education, and facilitate volunteerism and community involvement.

The USS Maine would make a brief stop at Fort Jefferson before its ill-fated voyage to Havana. Following the sinking of the Maine, the Dry Tortugas served as an important staging area for U.S. battleships during the Spanish-American War.
