The Everglades Wetland Research Park on the campus of the Naples Botanical Garden, Naples, Florida, is a Florida Gulf Coast University facility designed to provide teaching, research, and service related to wetland, river, and coastal science and ecological engineering. At the research park, we seek to understand:
how wetlands function, and
if and how we can create and restore wetlands.
The overall goals of our facility are the same as that of the university: teaching, research, and service, but in a soggy environment! We have and will continue to contribute to the restoration and conservation of wetlands in the Florida Everglades (the sawgrass “river of grass”, Big Cypress Swamp, coastal mangrove swamps) and wetlands around the world.
