Deane and Chris invite  you to enjoy  some of the natural  beauty of Southwest Florida. Chris and Deane live on Oil Well Road, named so because it led into an Oil Well area of the Everglades.

 Work continues to prevent oil wells in Florida Everglades ecosystem.

Everglades is flat,  dominated by  sawgrass,  with a series of alternating ridges and sloughs, through which an imperceptible flow of water courses south from  Lake Okeechobee.  Ridges are only six inches higher  than the sloughs,  but this makes a huge difference  in this sodden world. Sloughs are the valleys of the Everglades and the tree island ridges are its mountains.

The islands formed  on elevated bedrock  a few inches higher than the surrounding marsh,   provide havens  for animal and plant diversity.  Tree islands  are a half-mile to two miles long, and have  two or three times  more plant and  animal species than the surrounding marsh. Wading birds use the island trees to nest; alligators and turtles lay their eggs on the dry land; and deer, snakes, lizards, and other animals find refuge there from rising water.
