At Shark Valley...
Students and teachers explore the vast Shark Valley Slough on a narrated open-air tram tour. Alligators, wading birds, turtles and fish are just a few of the residents commonly encountered.
During the excursion, students learn about and experience first hand the watershed of the Everglades. Rangers challenge students to think about their own connections to this important watershed. The trip includes a short hike to the observation tower for a bird’s eye view!
