Learning About the Everglades
Hi there, my name is Ranger J and I want to welcome you to Everglades National Park!
This section of the web page is For Kids just like you, so that you can learn more about our park.
The Everglades is truly a unique and beautiful place that still contains many mysteries.
Over the years, a great many years in fact, Native Americans, soldiers, settlers, naturalists and scientists have all explored the Everglades trying to discover its secrets.
Did You Know?
Limestone is the porous, sedimentary rock you see in the Everglades. These rocks are made of calcium and contain fossils of sea life, evidence of ancient seas that once covered the area. The limestone aquifer under the Everglades acts as the principal water recharge area for all of south Florida.
