I may be dating myself, but I thought about the movie the “Creature from the Black Lagoon” when I saw a poetry contest at Big Cypress’ website. It asked visitors to write about their experiences. After I saw pictures of hikers wading through the swamp with a tour guide, I wondered what inspirations they would pen.

Big Cypress is sponsoring a poetry contest as part of National Poetry Month. Entries must be received by April 15.

Protecting over 729,000 acres of swampland, the Big Cypress National Preserve is essential to the health of the neighboring Everglades.
