HomeworkSpot > The Florida Everglades



The Everglades

The Florida Everglades were first inhabited more than 11,000 years ago by two groups of indigenous people, the Tequestas and the Calusas. Since then, the region has seen continuous change with the invasion of Spanish settlers, colonization by the British and the Seminoles through the mid-1800s.

After years of effort toward preserving Florida's wildlife and wilderness, President Harry S. Truman dedicated Everglades National Park in December 1947. The Everglades are one of the most unique ecosystems in the world, and more than 15 endangered species call it their home. Check out these sites to learn more about the history of the South Florida natives and the future of the Everglades.
