Everglades Rising

Download our Teacher’s Guides:


The Kern team explores the habitats and inhabitants of the Everglades bio-region: a vast wilderness area whose eastern boundary hugs the sprawling urban landscape of Miami.

While the Everglades is a wild, seemingly endless wetland ecosystem, it has been tamed. Audiences will learn about how the watershed has been altered, the threats faced by invasive species, and the looming effects of climate change.
