The Everglades National Park is located within a 2.5-hour drive from Palm Beach County. The National Park is considered to be one of Florida’s most cherished state park. In August 2018 the park turned 96 years old and is the third largest park and third largest tropical wilderness in the country.

The Everglades is a massive 1.5 million acres of wetlands that houses more than 2,300 miles of natural habits for snakes, birds, alligators, the Florida panther and other wild life. The park also offers hiking and biking trails, fishing, kayaking and canoeing, places to stay and eat and more. The park has several rental spots for canoes and kayaks if you don’t want to bring your own, and well as public restrooms, boat ramps, camp grounds, concession stands, and numerous calendar events. The Everglades National Park is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and is located at 40001 State Road 9336 in Homestead, Florida.

Come and celebrate the Everglades on Saturday, February 9th for the 2019 Everglades Day Festival. The free, outdoor family festival is in its 20th year and is all about mother nature. The event is held at the Arthur R Marshall Loxahatchee National Wildlife Refuge and is dedicated to learning and having a good time. The eco-friendly adventure throughout the park will feature guest speakers, interactive games, wildlife presentations, live entertainment, food trucks, exhibits, and demonstrations to name a few. There will also be chances to go hiking and canoeing throughout the day.

Everglades Day starts at 8 am to 4 pm on Saturday, February 9th and aims to promote awareness, understanding, and appreciation of the National Park. The popular event brings over 4,000 people to the refuge center for the day. There will be free parking available off of State Road 7/ US 441 at the West Delray Regional Park in Delray Beach, where a free shuttle will transport guests to and from the festival.

The Arthur R Marshall Loxahatchee National Wildlife Refuge is located at 10216 Lee Road in Boynton Beach. For more information, visit their website.
