The Young Everglades Patrons is a group of young, like-minded individuals dedicated to raising awareness of the vital importance of the restoration and protection of America’s Everglades, and to raising funds to help the Foundation carry out its mission. For more details, visit evergladesfoundation.org/YEP, or contact Karina Buenrostro, kbuenrostro@evergladesfoundation.org.

The Everglades Foundation will celebrate Everglades Day, April 7, with events designed to educate and engage families and young professionals on how they can play an active role in restoring and protecting America’s beloved Everglades.

Since 2012, Everglades Day has been held on April 7, celebrating the birthday of Everglades activist Marjory Stoneman Douglas, who dedicated herself to protecting and conserving the globally unique ecosystem.

America’s Everglades provides drinking water to nine million Floridians, habitat for 78 threatened or endangered species, and includes 14 National Wildlife Refuges and four National Parks, including Everglades National Park – a World Heritage Site, an International Biosphere, and a Wetland of International Importance. The Everglades also supports a robust tourism-based economy, and helps mitigate climate change through carbon sequestration.

Since its founding in 1993, The Everglades Foundation has been devoted to restoring and protecting the precious ecosystem through science, advocacy, and education. On April 6 and 7, the Foundation will host virtual events designed to provide intriguing information about the one-of-a-kind ecosystem, and to engage participants in conversations about how to take an active role in restoring and protecting it.
