Heralded as the Ansel Adams of the Everglades, renowned photographer Clyde Butcher and his wife Niki Butcher host a fall festival at their Big Cypress Gallery every October.
As a highlight to the event, which showcases a highly sensitive Florida watershed area and the beauty of a unique ecosystem that provides habitat for several endangered species, the swamp walk through the hauntingly beautiful Big Cypress National Preserve is a must-do.
Sign up early, as these popular walks fill up fast. Tickets are $50, and kids under 17 can participate at no cost. All proceeds benefit environmental awareness programs for students.
