As polluted water released from Lake Okeechobee continues to rush down the Caloosahatchee River, the dark dirty water plagues Southwest Florida beaches and threatens the region’s quality of life. The water crisis has many asking the Conservancy of Southwest Florida: What is causing the problem? What can be done? How can I help?
Conservancy Director of Natural Resource Policy Jennifer Hecker will lead a discussion to help the community understand more about the nature of the current crisis, outline the Conservancy’s advocacy points, and share what individuals can do at the local level.
Reservations are required. Programs often sell out and seating is on a first-come, first-served basis. RSVP by email to Sophia Navarra at SophiaN@conservancy.org or call 239.403.4207. Free refreshments will be provided.
