Who's Who at the Park

Join Our Friends

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.

Support Your Park

Supporting your favorite park can be as simple as picking up a single piece of trash during your stay, or as intense as a six-month-long committment in the backcountry. Friends groups, associations, volunteers and everyday park visitors all have the potential to contribute in some way to the protection of our national treasures.

Volunteers-In-Parks Program
Volunteers play a vital role in the daily operation of Dry Tortugas National Park. Through the Volunteers-In-Parks (VIP) program, individuals generously share their time and talents to improve the visitor experience and maintain the unique resources found within the park. On average, volunteers spend two to four weeks a year living and working alongside park staff while performing a wide range of tasks. The selection process for the VIP program is competitive, and individuals selected are very skilled, enthusiastic, and adventurous people. Their accomplishments have greatly enhanced the park as we experience it today. If you have exceptional skills that you would like to share for the benefit of our national parks, please visit the park bookstore or the VIP website at www.nps.gov/volunteer for more information. You may review current opportunities and apply online at www.volunteer.gov/gov. A ZIP code search for 33041 will yield all open opportunities at Dry Tortugas National Park.
