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.


Everglades Coloring Pages

Over the years, volunteers, interns and ranger staff have created coloring pages we'd like to share with you. Click on each link to download a larger page that you can print for your work of art. Have fun!

Feel free to share your works of art with the park by posting on social media and tagging us @EvergladesNPS
