AIRIE Friends provide vital financial support that enables the organization to continue its commitment to providing artists the freedom to experiment with new ideas and methods in the Everglades National Park.  Becoming a member enables the Board of Directors to continue goal oriented growth for the non-profit organization.  AIRIE is the only residency located in our sub-tropical wilderness area.
