National Parks Conservation Association Reveals New Vision to Rebuild Flamingo in Everglades National Park

This week, Everglades National Park is hosting public meetings to gather input from stakeholders on their Flamingo Commercial Services Plan. The National Parks Conservation Association (NPCA) today announced its support to develop a “New Flamingo,” consistent with the park’s Alternative C in the Flamingo Commercial Services Plan. The national parks group has also identified six basic principles that should further guide the redevelopment of Flamingo.
