Every year around this time the Loxahatchee
National Wildlife Refuge has a wonderful event
to celebrate the Everglades. They have speakers,
exhibits, entertainment, environmental
education trips and much more. It's a great
event where you can learn a lot about the
Everglades and it's ecosystem, as well as have
fun with the family. We were happy to be
a part of the event this year.

The Refuge was giving tours into their
research area to explain what kind of
projects they are working on that will
help clean the Everglades, and make
the water flow more natural. It was
a wonderful experience to be able to
talk to the scientist who are working
on the project!

There were so many people waiting to hear
Clyde speak that we thought they were
waiting for something else! So, we stood
back thinking there was an animal show
going on or something...nope, they were
waiting for Clyde! Amazing!

Once again we found our lives surrounded
by positive people who care about Florida's
environment. It is such a good feeling
to hear about all of the great things
that are being done to save the Everglades.
Keep up the good work Loxahatchee Refuge!
