An exhibition at the Florida House

Explore the Exhibit

You are here. Exploring the Florida Wildlife Corridor will showcase iconic landscapes of the Corridor, from the Everglades up through working lands, wildlife underpasses, and into Florida’s gorgeous springs and forests. The exhibit will feature stunning landscape and wildlife photography under the categories: wetlands, working lands, wildlife crossings, and waterways. Visitors will be greeted by a large-scale map of the Corridor to ensure their working knowledge of the geography as well as the unique ecosystems and species it supports. The location of each artist’s work will be identified on the map and in the work’s description as visitors journey through the exhibit, can explore the online interactive map full of Corridor story maps and related short films.
