Aderire Everglades Ultras
The Fakahatchee Strand Preserve State Park is a Florida treasure. It is a beautiful and diverse wilderness located between "Alligator Alley" and Tamiami Trail in the Florida Everglades. It is the largest state park in Florida covering 80,000 acres, and features a wide variety of Everglades habitats, bald cypress swamp lowlands, grassland prairie, tropical hardwood hammocks and pine rock lands. This preserve is protected with great care and attention to detail. The Fakahatchee features the largest selection of species of orchids and bromeliads on the continent. Living here are Florida panther, black bear, deer, alligator, bobcat, Everglades mink, diamondback terrapin and water fowl and migratory birds too numerous to count. Its groves of native royal palms are the largest in the state and the only place in the world where bald cypress and royal palm share the forest canopy.
