History of the Club

Broward County Airboat, Halftrack and Conservation Club, Inc. 
“Dedicated To Preserve the Everglades”

The Broward County Airboat, Halftrack and Conservation Club formed in 1952. We are the second oldest sportsmen organization in the State of Florida. It is as dedicated now to the preservation of the Everglades as it has been for 64 years.

From its beginning, this organization has contributed more than $50,000.00 to the Florida Wildlife Federation, and raised hundreds of thousands of dollars for use towards conservation of the everglades. We have actively participated in, and sponsored game relocation programs.

As co-founders and supporters of the Everglades Coordination Council, we promote recreational airboat runs in various conservation areas. The club organizes family-oriented picnics, clean-up projects, bass fishing tournaments and poker runs.

Appointed members attend South Florida Water Management District, Everglades Coordination Council, and Big Cypress National Preserve meetings. We keep the general membership informed on how we may best promote and protect our Everglades. Many members are on call and participate in assisting the Florida Game and Fish Commission in rescue alert programs in the event of an airplane crash or other disaster in the Everglades.
