Water defines Florida’s ecosystem; it is our most precious natural resource. Join Friends of the Everglades’ Alex Gillen, executive director, for an overview on what is occurring in our local waters and what can be done to protect it. Alex will also provide an update on what is happening (and not happening) at the state and federal level regarding the protection of Florida’s environment and our diverse, beautiful Florida Everglades. Alex Gillen holds a Master of Science degree in Environmental Sciences and Policy and a Juris Doctor degree. He formerly worked for the U.S. House Appropriations Committee and is a member of the Martin County and Florida Bar Associations. This program is sponsored by Friends of the Everglades, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, founded by Marjory Stoneman Douglas in 1969; dedicated to protecting, restoring, and preserving the only Everglades in the world.
