The Broward County Airboat, Halftrack and Conservation Club has been evolved in the Melaleuca Eradication Project, Kissimmee River Restoration Project, Everglades Coalition, Big Cypress National Preserve ORV Management Plant and several other projects throughout the history of the club. We have held toy drives over the years and contributed time and money to daycare centers and needy children all over South Florida.
Every year the club sends less fortunate children to the Florida Game and Fresh Water Fish Commission’s Everglades Youth Conservation Camp near West Palm Beach in the Hungryland Slough of J.W. Corbett Wildlife Management Area, at no cost to their families.
We are founding members of the Florida Airboat Association, a statewide organization dedicated to the proper and enjoyable use of Airboats throughout the State of Florida. We continue to sponsor statewide meetings to combat misguided attempts to close Big Cypress Reserve, to ORV’s and unnecessarily prohibiting hunting in the South Florida Peninsula.
For many years, our club has held the largest airboat show and festival in South Florida as a fund-raiser. We recruit new members and inform the general public of all the natural wonders we know as the Everglades. Currently, the club is in the process of compiling a safety rules guide for both new and experienced airboat operators.
