national park, and on the other side by the everglades national park.

property. personally, i don't feel that one sealed tub is going to
destroy the environment, but i know that there are enough people out there
who would think this was completely out of the question. so i guess what
it comes down to is: were i to put a geocache on national park property,
what is the worst they could stick me with? littering? defacement? any
idea what the penalty is for anything like that?

hope someone can shed some light. if i'm completely out-of-place asking,
let me know and i'll hush up. ;)
