Protecting and Restoring the Everglades

The National Park Service dedicated funds from the NPF Resource Recovery and Protection program and its Everglades Freshwater Wetlands Mitigation Trust Fund to help restore, research, monitor and manage Everglades National Park.

The National Park Service dedicated over $67 million from the NPF Resource Recovery and Protection program and its Everglades Freshwater Wetlands Mitigation Trust Fund to help restore, research, monitor, and manage 6,600 acres of abandoned farmland inside Everglades National Park.

NPF is committed to help the Everglades continue to fight back against aggressive, non-native species like the Brazilian pepper and bring back what was once indigenous habitat.
