The Everglades Coalition Conference

The Everglades Coalition Conference was held this past weekend in Palm Beach Gardens. The Urban Environment League is a member of the Coalition.

Pictured above is Superintendent of Everglades National Park Dan Kimball with Congressman Ron Klein. Dan is a hydrologist and he wants to get Everglades National Park water right. The Park has been too dry. The conference is held every year so that Environmentalists, all the agencies (such as the South Florida Water Management District, the Fish & Wildlife Service, The Army Corps of Engineers, etc.) and the politicians can all get to talk with one another and learn the latest news on all the projects underway.

Pictured below is Thomas Strickland, Assistant Secretary of the Interior for Fish, Wildlife and Parks. He was the speaker at the dinner January 8th.
