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 redevelopment of Flamingo will depend on many factors, including limited funding and high insurance costs,” said National Parks Conservation Association Regional Director John Adornato. “The new Flamingo should leave a reduced footprint, incorporate “green” architecture, and restore the park’s natural habitats.”
