  • 'Florida Wildlife Corridor Expedition' movie and panel discussion

    An evening of film and conversation surrounding the Florida Wildlife Corridor vision. In 2012, four explorers traveled 1,000 miles in 100 days, from the Everglades to the Okefenokee swamp in southern Georgia. The team documented the trek through photography, video streams, radio reports, social media and in the documentary film, Florida Wildlife Corridor Expedition: Everglades to Okefenokee.  The corridor vision combines all of the Florida Ecological Greenways Network Critical Linkages, from the Everglades to Georgia and Alabama, to highlight the importance of protecting a functional network of public and private conservation lands to protect native biodiversity, essential ecosystem services, and the rural natural heritage that is unique to Florida. The evening will begin with a reception, followed by the film screening, then a panel discussion. Provided by the Florida Wildlife Corridor and Friends of Chinsegut Hill, with funding from the Florida Humanities Council.

    Price: Free; donations welcome.
