Everglades National Park has partnered with the University of Miami and the South Florida National Parks Trust to develop the prototype Flamingo Eco-Tent, an important step in the effort to rebuild Flamingo in a sustainable manner. The Eco-Tent could be a model for additional lodging options at Flamingo in the future. This prototype is available for use through April 14, 2013, and is located in the walk-in area of the Flamingo Campground.
