Everglades National Park: Mangrove Forest


Welcome back to National Parks and other public lands with T!


Everglades National Park has a number of videos on their website for the housebound to explore during the Covid-19 shutdown, including this video with Ranger Ally of the mangrove forest.


In 2016, we took the Mangrove Wilderness tour with the only company licensed to do boat excursions inside the National Park boundaries. You can find them by clicking here.


The tour was very similar to what is shown in the video, without the corny acting.  If you have 10 minutes to spare, I encourage you to watch the video. I enjoyed re-living this lovely journey through the Everglades.


Everglades National park protects over a million acres of wetlands at the Southernmost tip of Florida and has four visitors centers in the different sections of the park.
