Get the Water Flowing Again

Every Floridian knows how important the Everglades are. Nowhere else in the world offers so many unique fishing opportunities in a vibrant and diverse ecosystem. However, the Everglades need your help.

For years, people have talked about how best to “replumb the Everglades.” Restoring the historic water flows will have tremendous benefits for fishing from Lake Okeechobee south and along both the Gulf and Atlantic coasts of Florida. Everyone has seen the massive algae blooms caused by discharges into the Caloosahatchee and St. Lucie Rivers. Fixing these problems is a big job, and we can’t afford any unnecessary delays.

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers are reviewing plans for a reservoir project that is critical to restoring fish habitat in the Everglades, but we need your help to make sure this important project isn’t unnecessarily delayed.

Please take a moment to send them an email asking for their support of this important project.

If you live near one of these locations, please consider attending a meeting on this issue in person. Each meeting is from 6-8pm.
