December 6: Everglades National Park Established
On this day in 1947 the Everglades national Park was established. Often referred to as a “River of Grass,” the Florida Everglades is actually a complex system of ecosystems including not only sawgrass marshes, but also cypress swamps, hardwood hammocks, pine rock land, mangrove forests, and the marine environment of Florida Bay. We’ve created a collection of beautiful photographs, maps, and other resources for teaching about the amazing Everglades.
