Miami/Naples: Looking for a different way to commemorate Halloween this year? Head on out to Shark Valley in Everglades National Park for a slough slog!

This is always one of the most memorable experiences park visitors take home from the park. Walk into the everglades habitats with a ranger who will help interpret the flora and fauna of this most unique biological system. You'll get a little wet and capture a lot of memories at the same time. Don't miss this opportunity to discover your National Park!

9:30 a.m. - 12:30 p.m. or 1:30 p.m. - 4:30 p.m.
