There is no place on the planet like the Everglades. It is where two great biomes of life meet - the tropical and the temperate mid-latitude, which makes up much of the continental United States. Plants and animals from each coalesce in the Everglades to produce a sub tropical tapestry of ecosystems that is unmatched anywhere in the world. Spanning over 60 miles it is the widest river in the world. It has been described as a river of grass…this wonderland of life is a subtropical paradise that mystifies the mind and nurtures the soul.
