Into the Night: Shedding Light on Big Cypress’s Darkest Hours | February 1
Big Cypress National Preserve is breathtaking during the day, giving us a taste of the wildness of South Florida and protecting a variety of endangered species. During the night, Big Cypress may seem eerie, filled with unnerving sounds and spooky shadows. However, if we dig deeper, Big Cypress comes alive at night with creatures coming out to hunt, mate, avoid predators, and pollinate? With Ranger Emily, we will discover the beauties and mysteries of the night, including the importance of the nighttime to the endangered Ghost Orchid.
