1ST FLORIDA WATER POLICY SUMMIT NEARS

Calusa Waterkeeper will host the inaugural Florida Water Policy Summit from 6-8 p.m. on Jan. 21 at Broadway Palm Dinner Theatre in Fort Myers. Doors open at 5 p.m. for a Clean Water Fair in the lobby.

Representatives from Captains for Clean Water, the Conservancy of SWFL, Sanibel Captiva Conservation Foundation (SCCF), Center for Biological Diversity, Everglades Wetlands Research Park and Calusa Waterkeeper will lay out actionable policy aimed directly at newly elected officials and intended to cure the ills besetting Florida waterways.

The event will also celebrate the legacy of Martin Luther King Jr., weaving a social justice narrative into the evening, “Clean Water is a Basic Human Right.”

The format for the evening provides each speaker ten minutes to address their relative issue. Then, organizers will open the floor for approximately one hour of questions from the audience.

The cost to attend is a $10 donation.
