Everglades' wet sawgrass prairies, dry tropical hardwood hammocks and pinelands, mangrove swamps and Florida Bay and Gulf Coast estuaries provide habitat for a wildlife spectacle like no other. The Everglades are typically hot and humid from May through November. Temperatures reach average highs of 90°F, with humidity over 90%, and a heat index of over 100°F. Wet conditions and higher temperatures bring about significant changes in the Everglades landscape.
The South Florida Collections Management Center (SFCMC), located in Everglades National Park, acts as the museum and archival services provider for the five NPS units in the South Florida region. One of the primary calls for services being provided by the SFCMC is increased accessibility to the museum and archival collections. In order to meet this need, the SFCMC will work with the LHIP intern in developing strategies to reach new audiences and expand upon content that has been available through traditional strategies. The Archives Outreach Intern will conduct research into the cultural history of Everglades and Dry Tortugas National Parks, and provide updated archival photographic and textual content to the park's website coordinator.
