The District is beginning its update process for the Northern Everglades and Estuaries Protection Plan. People who care about these natural resources can provide comments, ideas and suggestions for the South Florida Water Management District staff to consider. While the Comprehensive Everglades Protection Plan includes initiatives for the region, these specialty plans give us the opportunity to assess where we are and plan a program to foster improvement. It’s not cheap. It’s not easy. With public input and support we can focus our efforts on learning how to protect the everglades and the stuff that matters—to us. The first meeting was held June 26, but you can sign up to be notified about the next one. Read more here.
