THE RIVER OF GRASS
They call the Everglades the “River of Grass,” because it’s actually a very, very slow-moving and incredibly wide river—it’s something like 50 miles wide. We go on a swamp safari. We get on an airboat and we head out into the Everglades, which is a very cool experience because most people have never been on an airboat before. Once we’re out there the students get to see an incredible array of wildlife. They get to see alligators, snakes, occasionally otters. There are a thousand species of birds out there—ibis, eagles, osprey, hawks. And of course, they get to see the Everglades itself, one of the real wonders of the world.
