About Us

Mission

Develop, promote, and deliver science-based education and public outreach programs central to restoration of the greater Everglades ecosystem and its historic "River of Grass."

History

Established in 1998, the Foundation has quickly grown to become a leader in environmental education and is the only non-profit in South Florida offering hands-on learning opportunities in Everglades restoration and preservation. Since the organization's founding, our message has reached more than three million people through our many programs and events, as well as via partnerships with other environmental and community groups.

In addition to working with thousands of students during each school year and through after-school, scout, and summer camp programs, the Marshall Foundation conducts an annual Summer Intern Program for college age students planning to pursue careers in the environmental sciences and related fields.

The Foundation has received numerous awards and recognition through the years for our efforts to develop future stewards of the environment, encourage appreciation for Florida's natural resources, and ensure safe drinking water for generations to come. Our volunteers have planted more than 100,000 native Florida trees in wetlands areas and harvested close to 4,000 pounds of cypress seeds for germination and replanting.
