Slough Slog - ¡Un paseo por las cúpulas de ciprés!

Event Description:

¡Un paseo por las cúpulas de ciprés! invites people y nuestra comunidad local to experience what it is like to be immersed into Everglades National Park’s cypress dome habitat. Participants will benefit from this program by: (1) Enjoying a fun, recreational and educational experience at Everglades National Park, and (2) being surrounded by the third-largest National Park in the lower forty-eight states. We wish to educate the local Latino and minority community about the natural resources that Everglades provides for visitors and neighbors alike. We will entertain participants and teach them about this truly unique and sometimes wet landscape to engage and encourage them to return to develop their relationships with their park.

Participants MUST wear long pants and closed-toed shoes. Hats, sunglasses, sunscreen, a water bottle, and snacks are encouraged.

There is a minimum age of 12 years old for safety purposes and a limited amount of space.

Although the guided wet hike and guided tours are free, participants pay the park entrance fee of $30 per vehicle.The National Park Service is committed to engaging and celebrating the diversity of cultures and people in their surrounding communities.

Latino Conservation Week: Disfrutando y Conservando Nuestra Tierra is a Hispanic Access Foundation initiative. Every year interns from the Latino Heritage Internship Program organize and host numerous naturally and culturally inclusive activities for Latinos, a historically underrepresented visitor demographic to the National Parks.
