We are so blessed to be able to open up our backyard to share with you the beautiful environment at our Big Cypress Gallery, so everyone can enjoy what we see on an everyday basis. The flora, fauna and the wildlife make for a perfect outing!

Experience the primordial beauty of Clyde Butcher’s world when you experience a guided eco-swamp tour through the swamps of Big Cypress National Preserve behind his gallery. Marvel at the pristine splendor of natural Florida as you traverse through a rarely seen world.

Clyde Butcher's Big Cypress Gallery, located in the middle of a million acres of National Park wilderness, is surrounded by the serene beauty of the photographic world of Clyde Butcher. Visit the gallery and get a close look at his astonishing black-and-white, large-format, silver gelatin photographs.

During our swamp walk eco tours and photo safaris you’ll learn about the fragile Everglades ecosystem. Your guide will point our orchids, rare ferns, threatened bromeliad, native birds and a host of swamp creatures. Beneath the ancient cypress trees, stop and listen to the deep stillness of an unspoiled world that seems far from everyday life. In this light-filled realm of wonder and awe, you are completely surrounded by nature in her purest and most sacred state.

  • Clyde Butcher is a gifted photographer, and he is also generous enough to feature other artists' work in the gallery. This is a good stop after an airboat tour before you get sloppy messy exploring...  more »
  • We stopped by the Gallery on our way home from a stay in Everglades City. Before we stepped into the gattery, the grounds drew us to stop and look and listen, plants and animals of the Everglades...  more »
  • Wow . This is such a nice place to be found in the everglades. The photographer Mr. Butcher is incredible. We hope to join him this coming weekend at a meet and greet event at this Gallery. Also amazing to find out there are cabins to be rented out on the beautiful property.
  • Amazing photo gallery! The pictures are beautiful, and capture images of the Everglades you might not otherwise ever see. There is also a cool little raised nature trail being the gallery, in the swamp area.
