The National Park Service Volunteers-in-Parks Day is. Everglades National Park will host a volunteer event on to trim brush around trails and trail heads in the Flamingo District, making the area safer, accessible, and aesthetically pleasing for visitors.
Volunteers will meet atam in the Ernest F. Coe Visitor Center parking lot. We will then caravan to the service location. Participants are required to wear long-sleeved shirts, sneakers, and long pants to protect against exposure to sun, biting insects, poisonwood, and ivy. Please bring a lunch, water bottle, hat, and sunglasses.
Participating volunteers will receive a free entry pass, enabling each volunteer to visit the Everglades again and share this unique National Park with their family and friends.
Address of Ernest F. Coe Visitor Center: 40001 SR 9336, Homestead, FL 33034
Volunteers coming from the Miami area and northern destinations should take the Florida Turnpike (Route 821) south until it ends merging with U.S.1 at Florida City. Turn right at the first traffic light onto Palm Drive (State Road 9336/SW 344th St.) and follow the signs to the park. The Ernest F. Coe Visitor Center will be on the right.
