Join Big Cypress on December 5, 2015, from 10:30 to 4:00 pm, at the Big Cypress Swamp Welcome Center (33000 Tamiami Trail East Ochopee, Florida 34141) as we celebrate the history and culture of South Florida for the FIFTH annual Swamp Heritage Festival!
Learn about the history of this rugged, yet beautiful environment through park rangers, volunteers, local experts and residents that will share their love of the swamp through programs, activities, and thought-provoking presentations.
This FREE family-friendly event shines a spotlight upon the inhabitants of early South Florida, whose rugged strength and pioneering spirit contributed to the shaping of today’s unique and diverse culture. Through living history demonstrations, informative presentations, and exhibits everyone can learn what daily life was like in such a remote, and at times, inhospitable place. These unique chapters in American history add to the rich and colorful tableau that comprises our shared past and present.
