This chapter shows how naturalization of the Everglades is attributable to the collaborations of local glades guides and visiting naturalists. It discusses how scientists contribute to conservation efforts. It also explains that surveys and expeditions into the Everglades backcountry would not have been possible without those collaborations. Numerous agents have reshaped the Everglades’ landscape and altered the practices of humans and nonhumans. The chapter also presents how politics sets in motion some naturalizations that result in the banishment of the local families from the landscape itself. It investigates how naturalization has been transformed from a hunter’s landscape into natural landscape such as the Everglades National Park, and Royal Palm Hammock.

Keywords:   Everglades, naturalization, politics, Everglades National Park, natural landscape, Royal Palm Hammock
