EVERGLADES NATIONAL PARK L

Here at the southernmost tip of Florida roads and other facilities are now being
is a vast, natural, sub- tropic wonderland built which will greatly expand the area


--rich with rare bird, fish and animal
life. Recently established as the third
largest national park in the U.S.A., new


now available to Florida visitors. Wild-
life tours are conducted by the Audu-
bon Society during the winter season.


The ONLY SUB-TROPICAL NATIONAL PARK in the UNITED STATES






EVERGLADES NATIONAL PARK

Ever see a flight of roseate spoonbills winging
over Florida Bay from their feeding grounds on
the Florida Keys? It's like watching a ribbon of
animated rose pink petals suspended in a dream
world of blue sky and aqua-tinted sea. Then the
great birds break their long garlands to form
swirling bouquets as they hover over the emerald
isle which is their nesting place. This is only one
of many marvels found by nature lovers in the
new Everglades National Park.



















Your attention is called to Florida's many natural wonders,
as well as unparalleled industrial and commercial opportu-
nities, as a part of our "Helping Build Florida" program--
Florida Power and Light Company, Miami.

Every Motorist Who

Visits This Park

-must traverse the State of Florida twice.


-minimum mileage 780.

-maximum mileage 1,370.


If the average number of motorists is one
million a year-and this is conservative
-and they spend only four days in the
State-the very minimum-it will mean
revenue of FORTY MILLION DOLLARS
every year to Florida communities from
Pensacola to Key West.


Over 16,000,000 Tourists Visit

National Parks Each Year


FLORIDA'S EVERGLADES
Will Be the
LATEST SECOND LARGEST
and the ONLY PARK
Readily Accessible to Motor
Travel 12 Months Each Year
