Ranger - Led Programs


Go beyond your park visit! Ranger led programs are a great option to enrich your experience at national parks. These are special programs created by Park Rangers who interpret the parks natural and cultural resources.

Everglades National Park increases its programs during the high visitor season (December through March), where additional seasonal rangers allow the park to provide more interpreted activities.

To plan your visit, pick an area and check out the types of ranger guided programs you may be able to enjoy!

You can also search the dates of your planned visit on the calendar for an overview the activities that will be offered throughout the park!

Note: There are three separate entrances to the park: near Homestead, near Miami and near Everglades City. Each park entrance offers unique programs focused on its surrounding resources.
