Everglades National Park

The nature of Florida is unlike any other in the United States. Deciduous forests give way to subtropical wetlands, savannahs, and emerald palm-lined beaches. Join interpretive naturalist and popular tour leader Keith Tomlinson on a journey around the best of Florida.

Tomlinson surveys natural communities of this unique peninsula and highlights some of the best places to hike, swim, and camp. His discussion spans geology, plant geography, shells, and birding in some of the state’s best- and least-known conserved parklands. These natural treasures illustrate great challenges and victories in the quest to conserve Florida’s biodiversity, and Tomlinson touches on several of them as he considers our human footprint.
