Every Day is Earth Day in the Florida Keys

April 24, 2023

Earth Day is April 22, but that doesn't mean that you have to limit your celebration to a single day! In the Florida Keys, every day can be earth day! Here are a couple of our favorite local places to celebrate the planet we call home. 


Dry Tortugas National Park

The unique Dry Tortugas National Park is made up of seven small islands, plus protected coral reefs. Along with the highly-photographed Fort Jefferson, the park is known for its blue waters and diverse marine life. You can truly become immersed in the Keys' natural landscape at this remote spot! 

Everglades National Park 

At the very northern end of the Florida Keys, you'll find the Everglades, which are the largest subtropical wilderness in the United States. They provide important habitat for  rare, endangered species including the manatee, American crocodile, and the Florida panther. This World Heritage site is worth exploring, whether on a guided tour or an independent hike. 


Turtle Hospital 

The Turtle Hospital is a fully functioning veterinary hospital for sick and injured sea turtles. They are dedicated to rescuing, rehabilitating, and releasing sea turtles. They also do a great job of educating visitors through their public guided tours! Come meet the turtles and learn about conservation! 

Come immerse yourself in the beauty of the Florida Keys! As you explore, try to be mindful of trash and emissions. After all, we want future generations to be able to enjoy the beach the same way that we do!
