- The South Florida Natural Resources Center (SFNRC), a division of Everglades National Park (ENP), provides scientific information and environmental assessments to the National Park Service (NPS) units of south Florida and to the Department of the Interior. Established in 1978, the center was given the unprecedented mandate to address the impacts of activities taking place outside park boundaries. This unique charter requires that center scientists conduct scientific inquires into the ecology of the region as a whole, evaluating the impacts that land-use and water resources management actions have on the freshwater, estuarine, and coastal ecosystems of south Florida.

- This multimedia collection highlights the lives and work of two extraordinary Floridians – Marjory Stoneman Douglas and Marjorie Carr. These two women shared a love of the natural world; an interest in conservation and wildlife protection; and the courage to confront the potent influence of developers, boosters and the Army Corps of Engineers in Florida. Each of these ‘Marjories’ was known for her exceptional intelligence, courage, persistence, and skills in persuasion. Marjorie Carr is best known for leading the long battle to stop the construction of the Cross Florida Barge Canal, a mammoth, multi-million dollar project traversing central Florida that threatened the area's ecosystem. Marjory Stoneman Douglas, environmental activist and author of the landmark book, Everglades, River of Grass formed a grassroots organization, Friends of the Everglades, to stop an international jetport from being built in the Big Cypress.
