I have actually been slightly familiar with the concerns afflicting the Everglades, if just since they resemble the ones I deal with here in the Rockies. Bad water management, overconsumption of resources, and a basic neglect for the natural world is a dish for catastrophe, which plays out almost all over that humanity encroaches on what was when wilderness.
I didn’t, nevertheless, comprehend simply how treacherous things were down in Florida till checking out Hilary Hutcheson’s great, extensive piece in Fly Fisherman Magazine about Captains for Tidy Water. They’re a not-for-profit group intending to make huge modifications to water management in Florida to conserve the Everglades– and in big part, they’re prospering.
Hutcheson’s piece is a must-read for everybody who values tidy water. You can do so here.
