Experience the Florida Everglades on a guided swamp walk through the Big Cypress Swamp National Preserve or Fakahatchee Strand Preserve State Park. On this educational eco-tour, explore the Everglades with your expert naturalist guide and learn about the history of the Everglades, the impact humans have on the ecosystem, and the comprehensive Everglades restoration plan.
Keep your eyes out for a large variety of native and exotic flora and fauna species that inhabit this ecosystem. Spot endangered plants such as the ghost orchid or the dingy-flowered star. If you’re lucky, you may see white-tailed deer, red-shouldered hawks, barred owls, pileated woodpeckers, egrets, herons, alligators and other reptiles. You may even come across fresh tracks from the elusive Florida panther or even a black bear!
