Forever Florida wants to partner with the state’s educators and parents to provide future generations of Floridians with the knowledge and understanding required to preserve our state’s fragile ecosystems and natural wildlife.

Together with onsite educators, we have designed teaching aids for the classroom to help introduce students to Florida’s ecosystems. These focus on expressing their fragility, showing how we interact with each ecosystem and explaining how to preserve these special places. Each lesson has been developed to be compatible with Florida’s Science FCAT testing and the Sunshine State Standards.

We can also work directly with educators to develop activities and lessons to meet their specific curriculum needs. Contact the Director of Education at

“We want there to be a place for natural Florida to exist, to be seen, studied, and learned from.” 

Dr. William Broussard


Florida has a rich history, in both nature and society. The moment the Spanish set foot on the peninsula, Florida would be forever changed.


From the get go, honoring history and providing a glimpse into the heritage of the land we inhabited was important for us.


The day Allen told his father about his concerns at the disappearance of Florida’s natural beauty was one of the last days they would be together.
