Changes considered for boats in Everglades National Park

The National Park Service is considering changes to how boating in the back country of the Everglades National Park is managed, including significantly expanding Pole/Troll zones where only electric trolling motors and push poles would be permitted for use.

Also under consideration are special boater education permit requirements beyond what is required by the state of Florida.
