FLORIDA: MISSION EVERGLADES
The long-awaited exhibit, “Florida: Mission Everglades,” at Zoo Miami will officially open its doors on Nov. 19. “We’re very excited to see this project come to life,” said Zoo Miami Director Carol Kruse. More than 60 species will be on view in the expanded area, from a relaxing water feature with wading birds to a thrilling encounter with American alligators and crocodiles. Get an up- close look at the animals in the crawl-through “tunnel” of the crocodile habitat. Bring the kids to splash around in the new water playground. But once your visit is over, make sure to start planning your next trip to the actual Everglades. Get ready, set, go! 12400 SW 152nd St. Miami, 305.251.0400, www.zoomiami.org.
