“Over 729,000 acres of swamp!”
The freshwaters of the Big Cypress Swamp, essential to the health of the neighboring Everglades, support the rich marine estuaries along Florida's southwest coast. Protecting over 729,000 acres of this vast swamp, Big Cypress National Preserve contains a mixture of tropical and temperate plant communities that are home to a diversity of wildlife, including the elusive Florida panther. Plan on spending at least a few hours in the national preserve, exploring the scenic drive and several of the viewpoints and boardwalks. If time permits, consider attending an interpretive program. Guided walks, short talks and campfire programs are offered daily, November through April.
