Family Fun Fest at Biscayne National Park is a free educational event from 1 to 4 p.m. on the second Sunday of every month from December through April. Each month focuses on a different aspect of the park`s diverse resources through fun and educational activities for all ages. This 2010 season of Biscayne National Park’s Family Fun Fest marks the 10th anniversary of this award-winning program.

This months event will be BioBlitz: For the Love of Diversity on February 14, 2010 from 1 - 4 p.m. The United Nations has declared 2010 the "International Year of Biodiversity" and National Geographic is joining with the park this spring for BioBlitz: a 24-hour all-species biodiversity count for the park.

Biscayne National Park requires some planning to make the most of a visit. With 95% of its 172,000 acres covered by water, going out on a boat is the best way to really experience the park, and will require at least half a day. The park's concessioner offers a variety of boat trips to the park's reefs and islands.

If you only have a short while, or cannot go out on a boat, the Convoy Point area offers a variety of land-based and indoor opportunities to get to know the park.

The Biscayne National Park is located at 9700 SW 328 Street in Homestead, Florida 33033.
