Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke will travel to Florida on Thursday to “conduct on-the-ground assessments of hurricane damage at National Park Service locations and to receive a briefing on Everglades Restoration,” according to a release.
He’ll be in the state through Saturday. On Thursday he’ll get a briefing on infrastructure upgrades and Everglades restoration at Lake Okeechobee.
On Friday, he’ll see hurricane damage and clean-up at Big Cypress National Preserve.
And Saturday, Zinke will hold a media event with Sen. Marco Rubio and members of the congressional delegation.
The trip comes as Zinke’s travel habits have come under scrutiny.
