Celebrate Spring In The Everglades

Wildflower Walk At Everglades National Park

BIG CYPRESS, FL. -- Celebrate Spring and Easter weekend by looking for the beautiful wildflowers of Big Cypress National Preserve. Join Park Rangers and Botanists on Saturday, April 11th with walks at 8:30 and 9:00 a.m.lasting approximately 2 ½ hours

Ranger LIsa Andrews says, "Come prepared with sturdy walking shoes that can get wet or muddy, water, snack, hat, sunglasses and lightweight clothing." Space is limited to 15 persons on walks so make your reservation by calling the Big Cyress Preserve office  at 239-695-1164 or e-mail

The groups will be going on the Concho Billie Trail off of Turner River Rd which is off of U.S. Hwy 41 on the western side of the preserve.  The walk will be through prairie, pineland and cypress.  Some of the areas have recently had a prescribed burn so there should be lots of new growth and wildlife.
