The Florida EvergladesThe Florida Everglades

          The Florida Everglades are subtropical wetlands located in the southern portion of the state of Florida, extending from Lake Okeechobee on the north to Florida Bay on the south and was once bordered by Big Cypress Swamp on the west and the Atlantic Coastal Ridge on the east. A rapidly growing South Florida human population of over 6 million people lives in close proximity to - and in surprising dependence upon - the Florida Everglades. The Everglades ecosystem not only contributes to South Florida's water supply, flood control, and recreation, but serves as the habitat for diverse species of wildlife and plant life.
          We invite you to learn more about the Everglades by exploring the following links categorized by General Information, History and Culture, Nature and Science, & Environmental Issues and Restoration:
