Plan a Field Trip

The vibrant, dynamic Everglades ecosystem provides the perfect outdoor classroom for field studies. Educators have several options for bringing students for a visit to the park.

Local 4th, 5th, and 6th grade students can participate in one of our curriculum-based ranger-guided programs. Teachers, you can also easily lead your own field trip.

If you have an educational group that does not meet the criteria for the 4th, 5th and 6th grade ranger-guided programs, then you can apply for a special request program. This is subject to ranger staffing and availability.

Full Moon

National Parks are some of the few places in this country where people can experience a night sky in all its magnificence, without the interference of artificial lights. In fact, a night sky monitoring program is being implemented in the National Park System to inventory light pollution.
