navigating the everglades

the florida everglades play such an important role in our eco-system – water-supply, flood protection, etc. – that it’s hard not to appreciate and admire the expansive marsh and grass that flows into the world’s second largest mangrove forest. it’s sad that half of the glades has been lost to development.

this weekend i introduced a chicago friend to the river of grass, alligators, and airboats. it’s a view of florida everyone should get at least once, even if we don’t always agree with how the locals make friends with the wildlife.
