Fakahatchee Strand - Western Everglades photography workshop
This workshop has been completed.

The Everglades system is unique, not just in Florida, not just in North America, but it is unique, in that there is not another ecosystem like it in the world. So unique and important is the Everglades that it has been designated an International Biosphere Reserve, a World Heritage Site and a Ramsar Wetland of International Importance.

Come explore, learn and photograph this one of a kind ecosystem with a Florida native, Photographer and Master Naturalist, James Shadle.

The Western Everglades Photography Workshop/Tour will cover the NW area of this system.

Learn how the “River of Grass”, the Big Cypress Swamp, Fakahatchee Strand and Florida Bay, each a system unto themselves, act as a single impressive ecosystem.

We will visit Shark Valley in the National Park, tour the famous Loop Road, explore The Fakahatchee Strand and wet walk in the Big Cypress Swamp.
