Sacred Waters: Exploring the Protection of Florida’s Fluid Landscapes

This presentation explores efforts to restore Florida’s waterways. We will investigate the
motivations of environmentalists who love and advocate for these water bodies. By focusing
on issues related to springs and the Everglades, we will dive into the conversations that arise
when Floridians view water as essential to their quality of life.
