HOMESTEAD, Fla. --- 200 people are becoming United States citizens at Biscayne National Park. The citizenship and naturalization ceremonies take place at 10 a.m. on January 18 and 19, 2018, at the Dante Fascell Visitor Center. The ceremonies are open to the public and include live music and inspirational speakers.


The National Park Service and U. S. Citizenship and Immigration Services are partners in hosting naturalization ceremonies in national parks across the country. In recent years Biscayne National Park welcomed over 1,000 new citizens into their new roles as owners of the most treasured places in America, our national parks. The ceremonies are made possible by the South Florida National Parks Trust with funding from The Miami Foundation and its Public Space Challenge.
