Everglades Adventure

The Everglades is the largest remaining subtropical wilderness in North America, one of our country's richest biological preserves and home to large numbers of endangered, rare and exotic species such as the spoonbill, the wood stork and the great blue heron.

Everglades Alligator

Students can thrill to the sight of both crocodiles and alligators.

The Everglades National Park is open year-round and is on a site of more than 1.5 million acres of marshes, open sawgrass, mangrove forests and fresh and brackish water wetlands. What an incredible way for students to get to know more about the Everglades and the Seminole Indians!

This is an adventure that will awaken the students' senses to the importance of Mother Earth and her ecosystems. The safari camp was built to present an authentic look at the history of the Seminole Tribe as well as the wildlife of the Everglades.

Everglades National Park was created to preserve the slow-moving "River of Grass," a freshwater river 50 miles wide but only 6 inches deep, flowing from Lake Okeechobee through marshy grassland into Florida Bay. Trees and flowers, including ferns, orchids, and bromeliads, share the brackish waters with otters, turtles, marsh rabbits, and occasionally, that gentle giant, the West Indian manatee.

The Everglades used to span from Lake Okeechobee in central Florida all the way down to Florida Bay. Now only 25% of the historic Everglades remains, which is being protected by the National Park.
