Everglades National Park

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. 

The coin features an anhinga with outstretched wings on a willow tree.  A roseate spoonbill, also common in the park, wades in the marsh.  Everglades National Park was established as a national site on May 30, 1934.
