The Annual Everglades Outing is RPCVSF's flagship community service 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 community-based program.
