Everglades Learning

Friends of the Everglades founder Marjory Stoneman Douglas truly believed that educating young people was critical to saving the Everglades. Now educators can bring the Everglades straight to their classrooms with our new interactive Everglades Learning Exploration Kit, designed to achieve cross-curricular learning standards suitable for 4th and 5th grade classroom use. We are thrilled to be able to offer this as a part of our newly revived Young Friends of the Everglades program. Check it out!
