forgot to mention: isn't the fakahatchee strand park OFF-limits to visitors? 

also, if you want a good read, you should try "orchid fever" by eric handsen. 
 a different subject altogether, but a much better researched and better 
written book (also much longer).  susan orlean ("orchid thief") is clearly 
not a science writer and her research is poor (she can't differentiate a 
cattleya from a paphiopedilum), but still a good read.  eric hansen's book is 
much larger in scope and deals with a different topic, but a very interesting 
read on CITES, conservation and orchid-mania...
