The Eagle is on an officer training tour of Caribbean and Atlantic ports where according to the Coast Guard Academy website (http://www.cga.edu/eagle.aspx?id=688) cadets and officer candidates “practice the navigation, engineering, and other professional theory.” The Eagle is “America's only active duty square rigger.” It is 295 feet long and its main mast is 147.3 feet tall. Its mission includes “6 officers, 54 regular crew, 20 temporary active duty crew, 140 cadets average.”

We have also produced two Public Services Announcements in both English and Spanish which you can find on the “Miami Parks Foundation” YouTube channel (http://www.youtube.com/MiamiParksFoundation).

The Miami Parks Foundation was founded by Rosy Palomino, Miami parks activist, pet lover and elementary educator, the first-ever, citizen-directed, organization designed to preserve open spaces and vacant land for public use as parks for residents like her who live in the City of Miami. The first goal of the “Miami Parks Foundation” is to inform the public about park activities and generate public interest so that parks can matter again.

To find out more “Miami Parks Foundation” and our efforts towards raising awareness of the importance of parks for residents in the City of Miami visit www.MiamiParksFoundation.com and join us at our next park event!
