Everglades National Park in southern Florida was constructed to protect the fragile ecosystem of the Everglades, which is the largest tropical wilderness in the United States. The park has five kinds of habitat, the freshwater sloughs which are sections of wetland that periodically flood, then the Cypress trees, coastal lowlands, the marine and estuary areas and the mangroves, which is the largest continuous mangrove ecosystem in the western hemisphere.
The park has many animal species that visitors may be able to spot, ranging from foxes to river otters to deer and snakes. There are also many alligators and crocodiles in the park, swimming in the water channels or sunning themselves on the river banks.
Visitors can discover the Everglades National Park on a self-guided tour on some of the park’s many interpretative trails, which are designed to allow for easy exploration of a particular natural habitat. Trails are well-marked and lined with informational displays about the nearby flora and fauna.
The Everglades National Park is accessible for guests with disabilities. There are 7 trails which are either paved or have a boardwalk and which are less than 1.2 km (0.75 miles) in length. Many of the visitor centers are wheelchair-accessible with accessible parking spaces, accessible bathrooms and wheelchairs available to loan on a first come, first served basis. The films shown in the visitor centers have captions and the signage in the park and in the visitors centers is in Braille, with tactile displays wherever possible.
