The Florida Everglades is the largest subtropical wilderness in the United States. The Everglades National Park quarter is the 25th quarter in the America the Beautiful Quarters® Program.
Everglades National Park serves to protect a unique landscape. Its habitats are home to many rare and endangered species like the manatee, the American crocodile, and the Florida panther.
Everglades is not only a national treasure but an international treasure as well. It has been designated as a world heritage site, an international biosphere reserve, and a wetland of international importance.
