Labeled the “Adventure to Florida’s last frontier,” the twenty guests lead by Guardian Franklin Adams, traveled in Big Cypress, Fakahatchee, and Everglades National Park, winding up with a half day slide show and discussion with Miccosukee Elder Betty Osceola (niece of Guardian Buffalo Tiger), Guardian Deb Jansen, and Nicholas and Connie. Among other requests, one guest asked for the lyrics of Walt Leuzinger’s “River of Grass.” www.Floriidahumanities.org.

Sometimes called the Photographer from La Mancha, my friend, colleague and dedicated environmental photographer, Gary Braasch, made documenting the effects of climate change his life’s work. He died this month while snorkeling and photographing along the Great Barrier Reef. Gary once noted that we have a lot of technology addressing climate change, but nothing’s going to happen until we actually FEEL it ourselves and SEE it. (Same with Everglades conservation.)
