Scientist from the Everglades Foundation Speaks

Keys History & Discovery Center Presents…Everglades Restoration: Protecting, Conserving and Strengthening, a lecture on Wednesday, Nov. 6. Doors open at 5:30 p.m., lecture begins at 6 p.m. The lecture is at the Keys History & Discovery Center and Islander Resort Conference Center, MM 82.

Join Steve Davis, Ph.D., as he tells of the place known as the River of Grass – the Everglades. Established as a national park in 1947, it is home to more than 70 threatened or endangered species. One out of every three Floridians relies on the Everglades for their water supply. The Everglades are in trouble and restoration of this damaged subtropical ecosystem is well-known and well-documented.

Hear from Dr. Davis how restoration efforts, including water infrastructure projects for South Florida that reduces unwanted and harmful discharges from Lake Okeechobee to the east and west coasts, and re-connecting natural flow patterns from the lake back to the south, hope to restore and protect Everglades habitats that have endured nearly a century of impacts.

Snacks and a cash bar will be available. Reservations are strongly recommended and can be made at 305-922-2237 or
