The Florida Everglades in southern Florida, is one of the largest wetlands in the world. Several hundred years ago, this wetlands was a major part of a 5 million acre watershed that covered almost a third of the entire state of Florida. Today the Everglades consist of a shallow sheet of fresh water that rolls slowly over the lowlands and through billions of blades of sawgrass. I learned so much visiting this natural wonder.

It’s been designated a World Heritage Site, International Biosphere Reserve, and Wetland of International Importance, significant to all people of the world.
