Our primary projects include Everglades research, restoration and education. We engage the Florida community in restoring and learning about the forested wetlands that were part of the historic Everglades ecosystem.
Founded in 1998, the Marshall Foundation aims to restore the Everglades ecosystem by replanting the cypress and pond apple forests that once made up much of its watershed. The Foundation has three goals: restoring original plant life and water flow patterns to the greater Everglades ecosystem, educating young people and the public about Everglades ecology, and delivering the message of preservation and restoration to as many people as possible through comprehensive public outreach programs.
In the last three years, the Marshall Foundation has planted over 66,000 native Florida trees, awarded over $150,000 in scholarships and internships, and involved more than 4,000 volunteers in hands-on restoration projects.
