Pictures, Film document Florida Trek

Join photographer Carlton Ward and filmmaker Elam Stoltzfus for the premiere of Florida Wildlife Corridor Expedition: Everglades to Okefenokee, a film that chronicles their 1,000-mile trek north. The film rolls 6:30 p.m. Sunday at the Tampa Bay History Center on Cotanchobee Park (801 Old Water Street, Tampa). For 100 days, Ward and fellow adventurers hiked, biked, kayaked and paddleboarded across Florida's wilderness to raise public awareness for the need for contiguous tracts of land where wildlife can live, breed and prosper. Ward's photographs will be on exhibit through May 5.

Sound off on bass

The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission seeks angler feedback on the management of the state's largemouth bass fishery and will hold a series of open houses over the next couple of months. Anglers can share their ideas with bass biologists at the Outdoor Expo and Boat Show today through Sunday at the Florida State Fairgrounds in Tampa. Visit tampaoutdoorexpo.com.
