Every year the students in Mrs. Stones fifth grade class at Avocado Elementary School in Homestead, Florida, study the Everglades, culminating with a field trip. As we explore two different regions with the children, we learn about the unique habitats, plants, and animals of the Everglades as well as the causes of the current-day problems, which began in the 1920s when industrial and residential development began encroaching on the southern part of Florida, polluting and draining the Everglades water and disrupting its natural flow.

We also learn about the 30-year, 8 billion dollar Everglades Restoration Project that is underway to restore the natural water flow and clean up the pollution, thus preserving the unique forms of life that depend on Everglades water.
