Everglades National Park

The largest tract of wilderness east of the Rocky Mountains is located in south Florida within Everglades National Park. The park is home to some of the most rare and endangered species in the U.S.: the West Indian manatee, the American crocodile, and more than a dozen others. It is home to the largest mangrove ecosystem in the Western hemisphere. This place also offers educational, recreational, and inspirational opportunities found nowhere else in the world. NPCA encourages you to visit this place and experience the Everglades in the way that best suits you—whether on a multi-day backcountry trek through the Wilderness Waterway or a casual visit to the park’s many rich wildlife viewing sites.
