HOMESTEAD, Fla -  Everglades National Park is the space where two worlds collide—tropical and temperate. Here, tropical and temperate species flourish side by side in a unique environment that is part Caribbean and part North American. On Sunday April 15, the Park will offer a free, Spanish language Ranger-led guided walk of the Anhinga Trail from 3:00 to 4:00 PM. “This special program will provide a chance for our Spanish speaking residents and visitors to come on out and learn about all the amazing nature and recreational opportunities this park has to offer” said Daniel Agudelo, the ranger who will lead the tour. “We also offer the same Ranger-led walk in English every day at 10:30 AM.”

Besides wildlife viewing, visitors can also explore the park by driving, hiking, biking, kayaking or joining one of the many free Ranger-led programs offered throughout the park.

There are two ways of getting to the park. The first way is with a vehicle and the park charges a $25 entrance fee that gives you unlimited access for 7 days. The second way is by riding the City of Homestead National Parks Trolley which provides free access to the park.
