Everglades National Park

Wild River of Grass

You’ll find Florida’s wilder side in Everglades National Park, a massive watershed fed by a slow-moving river that passes through the park as it makes its way south from Lake Okeechobee to Florida Bay. The Everglades is a World Heritage Site, Biosphere Reserve, Wetland of International Significance—and the largest designated wilderness in the eastern United States. Nine unique habitats lie within the park: hardwood, hammock, pineland, mangrove, coastal lowlands, freshwater slough, freshwater marl prairie, cypress, marine, and estuarine. All that diverse habitat supports a concomitant diversity of species, making the park home to a wide range of wildlife including alligators, turtles, panthers, manatees, bobcats, iguanas, frogs, and pelicans. How to see it all? Biking, hiking, kayaking, canoeing, boat cruising, and slough slogging!
