Discover the beauty, history, and ecosystems of the Everglades with a guided program in the Everglades National Park.
Explore Florida Bay, paddle through the mangrove forests in Cape Sable Canal, and go ashore on Cape Sable’s natural beach Cape Sable. With an Institute Naturalist, learn about the ecosystem and animals of the Bay on a full-day adventure.
Immerse yourself in the Everglades wilderness with this guided, primitive paddle as we study tropical hammock, sawgrass prairie, and mangrove ecology, the influence of water flow on Everglades ecosystems and how humans have impacted the environment in the Park. Meet your experienced Institute Naturalist at Nine Mile Pond.
