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. The Everglades landscape is a unique combination
of wetlands and uplands, including several distinct habitats
such as sawgrass marshes, sloughs
wet prairies, tree islands, tropical hardwood hammocks
pinelands, and at its southern most extreme, mangrove
swamps and the Florida Bay estuary
We invite you to learn more about the Everglades by exploring
the following Nature, Science and Science Resources links.
