The residency’s base camp is a small live-work cottage/apartment in the Everglades’ Pine Island District near Anhinga Trail. Artists get free access to the Everglades and the possibility to work with scientists in the Park during their stay. Artists are responsible for their own transportation. There is a queen-size bed and a twin sleeping couch, and on-site laundry facilities. Artists are responsible for their own meals, and there is plenty of cookware in the kitchen. The nearest grocery is in Homestead, a 30 minute drive, or at the historic Robert is Here fruit stand 15 minutes away. There are two bikes at the residency, and canoes or kayaks can be rented in Flamingo. At times it is possible to shadow scientists in the field, and such trips are best planned in advance. Artists who would like to camp during their residency should bring their own gear. Cellular service is spotty, and there is no internet in the residency itself, but there is a computer with internet available during office hours at the Coe Visitor Center nearby (map below). There is only one Artist in Residence at a time, so the residency offers plenty of time to get to know the Everglades.
