HOMESTEAD, Fla. – Everglades National Park is installing new access corridor markers and signs in Florida Bay, as a key component of the park’s integrated 2015 General Management Plan (GMP) implementation strategy to enhance protection and enjoyment of the park’s marine areas.
Work on 12 of 31 corridors is complete, mostly in the Flamingo area, and work will continue through April 2017. Additional details and an interactive web map are available at: https://www.nps.gov/ever/learn/management/florida-bay-new-access-corridor-markers-and-signs.htm.
