“INTO THE WILD” AN EVERGLADES NATIONAL PARK ADVENTURE
Before their adventure begins, family members give their honest opinions about the planned activities, their fears and concerns with the idea of spending a night in the Everglades. Their stay is filmed in a reality-TV format in order to give the audience a feeling of what the family experiences.
Hosted by Dayton Duncan, co-producer of The National Parks: America’s Best Idea, Into the Wild documents the Roberts family as they take part in ranger led activities that include canoeing, off trail wet walks, wildlife watching, and biking.
Into the Wild clears up misconceptions and alleviates fears which the majority of the six million people adjacent to the Everglades have about entering and enjoying the Everglades. The goal is to show an up close and personal look at the beauty and grandeur of what has been called “The River of Grass’ and to show local residents what’s in their backyard.
This project was made possible in part by a grant from the National Park Foundation through the generous support of the Evelyn and Walter Haas Jr. Fund and the Popplestone Foundation.
