The Big Cypress Collection is a photo-journal displaying the former and current state of the Big Cypress National Preserve. Located in Southwest Florida, it is an extension of the U.S. Park Service. A diverse array of native wildlife can be located in the state park, which also provides freshwater for multiple estuaries along Florida's coast. In addition to sightseeing, visitors can also enjoy a variety of recreational activities designed around the state park's unique landscape. The collection was produced by the Big Cypress National Preserve's staff in collaboration with the Southwest Florida Library Network (SWFLN) in a project funded by the State of Florida's Library Services and Technology Act (LSTA) grants program.
