about Everglades National Park:
Ranger-led tours and talks are scheduled at all five Visitor Centers, some especially tailored to families. Look online for a schedule - these activities are scaled back from Apr-Dec. The Junior Ranger program gives kids a chance to complete an activity booklet, get their booklets stamped, and send them in for a cool patch. Booklets can be picked up at the Visitor Centers.
The Shark Valley park entrance lies closest to Miami at the northeast corner of the park. To the south, the main Coe entrance leads to the Royal Palm and Flamingo Visitor Centers. The Gulf Coast Visitor Center lies 90 miles to the north and west of Coe.
