It's that time again for the Returned Peace Corps Volunteers of South Florida to start planning for the Annual Everglades National Park Outing.

The Outing gives around 100 kids and their chaperones 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.

If you are interested in taking part in this incredible event, please see link to register and volunteer for a team.  If you are unable to join but still would like to provide a donation, you are welcome to do so by logging into the RPCVSF website,, and selecting Donations from the Menu on the left side of the homepage, or just click Donations.

We hope to see you on February 25, 2023!
