Cobblestone May-June 2018

How are the Everglades— a shallow, slow moving river that once covered  about  18,000  square miles  of  southern  Florida—a part of history? COBBLESTONE magazine transports you to the tip of the state to look at the early societies of the Everglades and the life that still inhabits this fascinating space.


This edition of COBBLESTONE magazine dips into ecology, biology, zoology, geography, and other disciplines to present a truly well-rounded portrayal of a historic ecosystem that was (and is) vital to the environment of our country. As you study the native people, animals, birds, and reptiles, your kids will learn the history of why these wetlands deserve to be protected.
