First Lady to visit Everglades



First Lady Laura Bush will visit Everglades National Park on Wednesday to promote her First Bloom initiative, which seeks to restore plant life.

First she'll plant native plants with the park's Junior Rangers, then visit the Anhingha Trail near Royal Palm. There she'll speak about a new National Parks Foundation essay contest called "Turning a Leaf," which is aimed at highlighting ways that kids can help preserve the environment.
