Biscayne National Park Forests

Sub-tropical hardwood hammocks cover the higher parts of many of the park's islands. Common trees include mahogany, paradise tree, geiger tree, stoppers, seagrape, pigeon plum, gumbo limbo, satin leaf, and ironwood. These are trees not typically found within the continental United States outside South Florida, and belie the area's close relationship with the Caribbean. See the "Wetlands, Marshes and Swamps" section to learn about mangroves, Biscayne's other primary forest.

November's Featured Park
The North Cascades have long been known as the North American Alps. Characterized by rugged beauty, this steep mountain range is filled with jagged peaks, deep valleys, cascading waterfalls and glaciers. North Cascades National Park Service Complex contains the heart of this mountainous region in three park units which are all managed as one and include North Cascades National Park, Ross Lake and Lake Chelan National Recreation Areas.
November's Animal
Badgers are animals of open country. Their oval burrows (ten inches across and four to six inches high) are familiar features of grasslands on sandy or loamy soils of the eastern plains or shrub country in mountain parks or western valleys.
