About the Everglades -
Fun For Kids

Kids can have a great time exploring the Everglades with their families and friends. Take some time to look over some of the exhibits and films to be found at our different visitor centers or participate in any one of our regularly scheduled ranger programs.

With a little work, kids can even become an Everglades National Park Junior Ranger!


Help for Students

If you are looking for information to help you prepare school projects and reports or even if you just want to explore the park before you visit, you can do so here, by Learning About the Everglades!

Everglades Mountains and Valleys Video Series

So, what's it like to get knee-deep in freshwater? Is that gator winking at me? Join Laura and Everglades Park Rangers as they explore different habitats in a video series created just for kids! The "Everglades Mountains and Valleys" is a great virtual introduction to the Everglades ecosystem.
