17th Annual Everglades Outing

  • 30 Jan 2016
  • 8:30 AM - 3:00 PM
  • Everglades National Park


Registration is closed

The Annual Everglades Outing is RPCVSF's flagship member event! The Outing gives more than 100 kids the opportunity to see, learn about, and experience the amazingly unique ecosystems, plants, and animals that their home - South Florida - has to offer.  Along with an army of caring adults and rangers, the participating kids learn all about alligators, birds, wetlands, and rocklands while spending the whole day active and outside. Most of the children will be coming from local shelters, group homes, and through community-based program. RPCVs make the best volunteers and guides!

Please help support this worthwhile event by donating your time and resources!
