Primary Location - Florida Everglades

IU Outdoor Adventures wishes to acknowledge and honor the indigenous communities native to this region. We recognize the Seminole and Calusa people as past, present, and future caretakers of this land.

Everglades City

Everglades City, FL

The Everglades are know around the world for abundant wildlife, beautiful scenery and some of the best paddling imaginable. Writer Marjory Stoneman Douglas popularized the term "River of Grass" to describe the sawgrass marshes, part of a complex system of interdependent ecosystems that include cypress swamps, the estuarine mangrove forests of the Ten Thousand Islands, tropical hardwood hammocks, pine rockland, and the marine environment of Florida Bay.
