Biscayne Bay National Park is home to more than 600 species of fish, including 16 endangered species. It’s just one the things Hans Bockleman finds so rewarding about being a Florida National Parks Association Captain. FLPA protects the state’s marine waterways, while helping residents connect to the aquatic marvels both on and beyond the shoreline.

We joined Hans and an eager local family for a day snorkeling in the 173,000 acre Aquatic Preserve. Experiencing a park that is 95% water was a first for the Cardares family. Our cameras chronicled their deep sea explorations amid the tangled iconic mangroves, and captured the unforgettable beauty of this iconic tropical destination.

“It’s not just about providing a home for the fish. It’s about us. Mangroves protect our shoreline.” Captain Hans Bockleman- FNPA


“Being able to take people out there so they can see it, so they understand it and appreciate it, I know it changes people.” says Bockleman. We obviously agree. We awarded FNPA with a grant through our Parks For All program. It’s just part of the $1.9 million we’ve awarded so far to more than 120 nonprofit organizations.

Episode 3: Let it Ride.

In a year of many curves and ups and downs, just a few hours spent outdoors can be transformational. That’s why Hydro Flask is proud to support the International Mountain Bicycling Association (IMBA) in their efforts to build more trails and provide equitable access to cyclists all over the world.

Recently, we followed a group of intrepid mountain bikers along an IMBA-built trail as they escaped their everyday routines for the freedom of the mountain air. Over jumps, down drops and around sharp curves, our cameras caught both the adrenaline jolt of the ride, and the immense wonder of the natural world.

“Every chance that you get to go out and see nature and enjoy trails is just critical,” says IMBA project manager, Shane Wilson. We couldn’t agree more. We awarded IMBA with a grant through our Parks For All program. Just part of the $1.9 million we’ve awarded so far.

Watch the film then share it with your friends. And don't be surprised if you feel an intense, immediate urge to hit the trail. To learn more, visit Parks For All and International Mountain Bicycling Association.
