Families For Everglades Virtual Event
Tuesday, 04/06/2021-, 07:00 pm-09:00 pm
This virtual event hosted by The Everglades Foundation will engage families in a conversation about the Everglades ecosystem and its vital importance. Parents and other caregivers of children will be able to discover curious myths and misconceptions about the “River of Grass” in this educational presentation and leave with free resources to bring the Everglades home to the dinner table.
The Everglades Foundation will celebrate Everglades Day, April 7, with events designed to educate and engage families and young professionals on how they can play an active role in restoring and protecting America’s beloved Everglades.
Since 2012, Everglades Day has been held on April 7, celebrating the birthday of Everglades activist Marjory Stoneman Douglas, who dedicated herself to protecting and conserving the globally unique ecosystem.
America’s Everglades provides drinking water to nine million Floridians, habitat for 78 threatened or endangered species, and includes 14 National Wildlife Refuges and four National Parks, including Everglades National Park – a World Heritage Site, an International Biosphere, and a Wetland of International Importance. The Everglades also supports a robust tourism-based economy, and helps mitigate climate change through carbon sequestration.
Since its founding in 1993, The Everglades Foundation has been devoted to restoring and protecting the precious ecosystem through science, advocacy, and education. On April 6 and 7, the Foundation will host virtual events designed to provide intriguing information about the one-of-a-kind ecosystem, and to engage participants in conversations about how to take an active role in restoring and protecting it.Thank you for using Soul Of Miami!
