As part of the partnership, Natalie’s will help fund the printing of the program’s Junior Ranger Kits. Natalie’s also will give away up to 200 Florida State Parks annual entrance passes and provide complimentary juice at several major park events.

“Our vision is to inspire our local communities to learn, serve and share Florida’s natural and cultural resources,” said Marygrace Sexton, CEO of Natalie’s Juice Company. “With this program, we encourage everyone to get outdoors and enjoy Mother Nature’s beauty and wonder.”

“Natalie’s is making an amazing commitment to our state’s natural and cultural resources while also helping to create connections between young people and the springs, beaches, trails, ecosystems and historic sites that make Florida special,” said Julia Gill Woodward, Florida State Parks Foundation chief executive officer.

The Florida State Parks Foundation, founded in 1993 as Friends of Florida State Parks and renamed in 2018, is a nonprofit corporation. Its mission is to support and help sustain the Florida Park Service, its 175 award-winning parks and trails, local Friends groups and more than 20,000 park volunteers. It does this through programs that preserve and protect state parks, educate visitors about the value of state parks, encourage community engagement and active use of state parks, and advocacy. The volunteer board of directors represents private and public sectors as well as local and statewide interests.

Sexton started Natalie’s Orchid Island Juice Company in 1989.  The company remains a woman-owned, family-operated company. Sexton was inducted into the Specialty Food Association Hall of Fame last year.
