Revealing a sample of the Everglades through photography, the exhibit "Gifts of the Everglades" by Paula Baxter will be on display at the Ernest F. Coe Visitor Center. The exhibit can be viewed daily from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm during the month of May.
Paula Baxter is a four year participant of the Volunteer-In-Parks program for Everglades National Park. Volunteering has provided her the unique opportunity to photograph the park often. She considers each image a gift; a small sampling of what the Everglades has to offer.
Paula invites you to look deeply into the eyes of its creatures and the heart of its diverse habitats and savor the allure of the Everglades through still images.
A special "Meet the Artist" reception will be held Sunday May 15th at 2 pm.
Directions to the Park can be found on the website at http://www.nps.gov/ever/index.htm or by calling the Park at (305) 242-7700.
Did You Know?
Mermaid sightings have been reported by sailors throughout history who often blamed the part-woman, part-fish beings for leading them astray. But folklore experts believe that what those sailors were seeing were not mermaids, but rather air-breathing manatees, or their dugong relatives.
