Everglades National Park Reopens Paurotis Pond
HOMESTEAD, Florida - Paurotis Pond, and the zone beyond the parking area adjacent to the pond, reopens after seasonal closure. This area is one of the traditional nesting sites located in the heart of Everglades National Park and is seasonally closed in order to protect the endangered Wood Stork and all nesting birds from human disturbance.
Fishing, canoeing, and wildlife viewing access to the area is now open to visitors. Paurotis Pond is located 24 miles from the main entrance in Homestead.
