Historic Everglades Map, Watercolor 14x24"

These three map illustrations are for an upcoming video called "Dreaming of the Everglades" by the South Florida Natural Resources Center at Everglades National Park, being produced by Into Nature Films. They show the ideal past (I used the 1500's for this), the current everglades with it's many canals built by the US Army Corps in the 1900's, and a hope for the future that more water will move into the everglades again with the construction of the EAA reservoirs and canal changes. More water would mean less salt water intrusion in the aquifer and more birds.
