Florida Matters: Restoring The Everglades

Mar 14, 2017

The Everglades, Florida’s vast fresh water system that starts near Orlando and meanders South, is in trouble.

For years environmental advocates and sugar growers have clashed over how to restore the "River of Grass." And billions of dollars in projects to do just that aren’t going anywhere.

Reporters from fellow Florida Public Radio stations, WMFE in Orlando and WLRN in Miami, have been digging into the problems and solutions surrounding the Everglades.

This week on Florida Matters we hear stories from their series: River of Grass, Dying of Thirst

We also hear about some of the politics behind Everglades restoration from William "Windy" March, political columnist with the Tampa Bay Times.
