Trust Everglades Trust

For decades, pollution has been pouring into Lake Okeechobee from multiple directions, including the south. We have to stop it from heading east and west. The Everglades and Florida Bay (The Keys) desperately need this water - cleansed and plentiful - heading south.

There is a solution. Buy the land in the EAA. Build the reservoir. Stop the discharges east and west. Restore the flow of clean, fresh water into the Everglades and get it down to a starving Florida Bay. That is the undisputed environmental science of the Everglades.

There is the political science of the Everglades, too. This is what Everglades Trust is all about. We inform you when trust is broken by politicians not focused on the critical issues of the collapsing Everglades. We hold them accountable. We won't stop. We won't back down. Message to our elected officials: No more excuses. Just fix it.
