The Every Kid in a Park Program (EKIP) is an environmental education program that connects fourth-grade students to Everglades National Park. Thanks to our volunteers, we can welcome over 90 fourth-grade classes to the park! Volunteers will be stationed at one of five "field lab" tables on topics including alligators, birds, water, invasive species, and periphyton. These stations are meant to teach children about the importance of getting outside and understanding nature and it's resources. The EKIP Program will run four days a week, Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday from late-October until the end of March. Each program day will last approximately 3 hours, plus travel. Locations for this program include Royal Palm (RP) (40001 State Road 9336, Homestead, FL 33034) and Shark Valley (SV) (36000 SW 8th Street, Miami, FL 33194).
