To recognize National Park Service Volunteers-in-Parks Day, Everglades National Park hosted a volunteer event at the park’s historic Nike Missile Site on Saturday, April 27, 2013. It is one of the Nation’s best preserved sites from the Cold War Era and was built in response to the Cuban Missile Crisis. Due to the rapid growth of vegetation in this tropical environment, regular maintenance is required to prevent damage to the infrastructure of the site.
