With Tropical Storm Isaac moving beyond our area, and having sustained no major damage, Big Cypress National Preserve is reopening. All visitor facilities and access to the backcountry are reopened as of this morning.
We encourage all potential visitors to be safe and continue to monitor the potential of tropical weather throughout the remainder of the season. You can find the latest tropical weather updates here.

The great white heron is very similar to the great white egret. However, look closely and you will see that the heron has yellow legs, while the egret has black legs. The great white heron is found only in south Florida in the United States. It can also be found on several caribbean islands.
