Watershed Expedition Series:Florida Wildlife Corridor Expedition
The Watershed Education Program presents the second event in the Watershed Expedition Series: Please join us at the Wilkinson Public Library program room on May 9th to experience local conservationist Mallory Dimmitt’s incredible journey through the wild lands of Florida. Telluride local and seventh generation Floridian, Mallory Dimmitt, participated in six weeks of the 100-day, 1000-mile Florida Wildlife Corridor Expedition trek from the Everglades to the Okefenokee in Spring of 2012. The FWC expedition crew traveled by foot and kayak through diverse ecosystems home to sensitive wildlife habitats, endangered watersheds, and working ranches and farms. The goal of the expedition was to raise awareness of the last remaining wild lands of Florida and to highlight the potential collaborative conservation approach necessary to address the needs of the people,wildlife and natural resources. A reception will precede the event at 6:00pm with light snacks and an opportunity to talk with Mallory. You will also have a chance before and after the event to find out how you can get involved with The Watershed Education Program! The event starts at 6:30pm. Look out for the next Watershed Expedition Series event in July 2013!
