Description

The Big Cypress National Preserve was created in 1974 to protect the water quality, natural resources, and ecological integrity of the Big Cypress Swamp. The freshwaters of the Big Cypress Swamp, essential to the health of the neighboring Everglades, support the rich marine estuaries along Florida’s southwest coast. Protecting over 750,000 acres of this vast swamp, Big Cypress National Preserve contains a mixture of tropical and temperate plant communities that are home to a diversity of wildlife, including the elusive Florida panther.

Big Cypress National Preserve was one of the first national preserves within the National Park Service. As a Preserve, Big Cypress manages for a broader range of recreational activities, including hunting and Off-road Vehicle access.
