Everglades 75th Anniversary

Everglades National Park was dedicated December 6, 1947. While December 6, 2022 will be our actual 75th anniversary date, we think it's worth celebrating all year long.

We may be 75 years old, but we're still brand new!

With such a dynamic ecosystem, expect to see something different every time you visit. Whether it's wet season or dry season, the clear blue skies of winter or the billowy clouds of summer, Everglades Restoration efforts or invasive species removal, things are always changing in the 'glades! We have a fascinating history to share and reflect on, but we're also looking to the future to ensure the care of this special place for future generations to come!

Join us throughout the year to help us celebrate! Here's some highlights to watch for:


  • Grand reopening of Flamingo visitor center, restaurant and lodging - date TBD

  • Re-dedication of the park in December 2022 - location TBD


  • Seminar Series
  • Iron Ranger Challenge
  • Park history on social media #TBT

Stay tuned for more!
