Summary:
In a co-operative effort, the Everglades National Park and Miami-Dade County are restoring areas within Everglades National Park known as the "Hole-in-the-Donut" (HID). The name comes from the fact that it is an area of non-native plants completely surrounded by natural habitat. The area was originally wetlands. However, it was farmed from 1918 until 1975. After farming, the area became dominated by the non-native tree commonly known as either Brazilian pepper or Florida holly.
