There are dozens of edible species in the Everglades, if not scores. It can't be learned in a day, or a week or a month, not even a year. But you can get started. www.eattheweeds.com is a site based in Florida, and has many of the plants you would find in south Florida (and around the world.)

My advise, as a 4th generation Cracker, find a local expert to show you what is edible or not......most guides can do this.

If you are going hiking in the park, I wouldn't be picking plants, that is highly prohibited and carries a big fine.
I live less than 300 Yards from where the park starts.

Is it not interesting that management of such land includes removal of various creatures, or even harvesting, but there is an entrenched attitude about not managing plants.

That gave me a chuckle!
I could see having to buy a Foragers Permit. LOL. It smacks too much like getting 'grazing rights'...
