Everglades District

Everglades District was established in August of 2013. Our District proudly encompasses the path of the legendary “Barefoot Mailman” as our boundaries extend from Southern Blvd. south to the Palm Beach County Line, from the Atlantic Ocean, west to the Marjory Stoneman Douglas Everglades Habitat and the Arthur R. Marshall Loxahatchee National Wildlife Refuge. As virtually all of our communities having emerged from the Everglades, we respectfully heed our responsibility to help educate our Scouts about the special place known as the “River of Grass” and help preserve it for future generations.

Everglades District hosts an independent website and Facebook page.

  • Everglades District has done a great job in bringing on board new Commissioners last year to where we have a ratio of  3 units to every 1 Commissioner. 
  • Our goal - a 1 to 1 ratio.  So we need to triple our numbers! To achieve this goal we need Commissioners coming from each Unit.  Either working directly with their own Unit, or maintaining Big Brother (Troop) / Little Brother (Pack) relationships.  Building stronger bonds, sharing best practices, and Scout retention is what it's all about.
