Overview

"In the whole world, there is only one Everglades."

Every year the students in Ms. Stone's class study the Everglades. This majestic wetland near their school in Homestead, Florida, is home to a special mix of plants, animals, water, and weather found nowhere else on Earth.

As the children explore Everglades National Park and the nearby Miccosukee Reservation, they discover each area's habitats, wildlife, and plant life. They also learn that pollution and disrupted water flow have put the Everglades in danger but that people, environmental agencies, and governments are now working to control the damage. Most important is the Everglades Restoration Plan, an unprecedented ecological intervention that will restore the natural flow of water and allow the plants and animals of the Everglades to survive.

In Everglades Forever, Trish Marx and Cindy Karp provide an exciting introduction to America's great wetland. Like the students in Ms. Stone's class, children everywhere will realize the difference they can make in protecting and rescuing one of the grandest natural areas of the world.
