A Message From The Director

Celebrate Earth Day at a Florida State Park

Welcome to the website for Florida’s state parks and state trails. This website will help you plan your visits to Florida’s 171 award-winning state parks and state trails.

This April 22 marks the 45th anniversary of Earth Day, which was established in 1970 as a civic campaign to promote environmental stewardship and sustainability. More than one billion people in 192 countries participate in Earth Day activities each year, and Florida State Parks are proud to join these efforts.

While many parks are hosting individual events, including coastal cleanups and Earth Day celebrations, I encourage you to constantly promote a concern and care for the environment. Become active in your local environmental groups or look for events that encourage cleanups, removal of invasive species or recycling.

It’s not too early to plan for Memorial Day. Every year, I attend the Florida Folk Festival at Stephen Foster Folk Culture Center State Park. This year the festival will be held May 22, 23 and 24 and will feature the best of Florida’s music, arts and culture.  Tickets are on sale now at the Florida Folk Festival page. Admission for children ranges from free to $5.00 for the three day weekend, while adults can buy tickets in advance for $50.00 for the weekend.

Be sure to follow us on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and Instagram. Also, be sure to download the PocketRanger® app for iPhones and Android smart phones.

See you at the park!

Donald V. Forgione
Director, Florida Park Service
