A History of Water Stewardship in Southwest Florida
January 13, 2022 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm$30
Join journalist and county management expert Nick Penniman for a presentation on the history of water management in southwest Florida – where it succeeded and where it went terribly wrong. The talk will be illustrated with maps and photos, and audience participation is encouraged as we discuss growth management and its impacts on our coastal environment and health. This evening will be an excellent opportunity for newcomers,’ snowbirds ‘ and others who are curious to get essential context on the unique water quality issues facing our region. Beverages and finger food are provided.
