Experience America - National Parks - Everglades

  • Jul 3, 2014 · 7:00 AM

America’s National Parks offer a staggering array of opportunities for epic adventure, breathtaking beauty, and remarkable experiences that you will remember for a lifetime. Covering more than 84 million acres, the National Park System is comprised of 124 historical parks or sites, 78 national monuments, 59 national parks, 25 battlefields or military parks, 18 preserves, 18 recreation areas, 10 seashores, four parkways, four lakeshores, and two reserves. There is something for everyone! This year I want to experience a bit of just a fraction of them, including the nation’s (and world’s) first national Park: Yellowstone. The goal is to sample as many national parks as I can within budgetary and time off from work constraints. If you are interested in joining me, you will be responsible for arranging your own transportation and lodging. Details of each trip will be planned with participants.

Part 6: Everglades National Park.

This park is located in south Florida.

Everglades National Park protects an unparalleled landscape that provides important habitat for numerous rare and endangered species like the manatee, American crocodile, and the elusive Florida panther.

An international treasure as well - a World Heritage Site, International Biosphere Reserve, a Wetland of International Importance, and a specially protected areas under the Cartagena Treaty.

For detailed park information, see http://www.nps.gov/ever/index.htm.

    Thanks, Joe. I'll be up north until August 1 but that will still leave plenty of time for us to go.

    Hi Joe,
    So glad to hear you had such a great time. Just yesterday Dennis was telling me he wants to do snorkeling in the Keys. He decided just a little too late for us to join you. I would have loved it.
