Reaffirming the Need to Restore the Everglades in Memory of the 'Lost Summer'
Environmental Groups gathered in Stuart Tuesday, July 25th, to commemorate the 10th anniversary of what has come to be known as the ‘Lost Summer’, a series of devastating algae blooms that left south Florida residents stunned and spurred renewed efforts to restore the Everglades.
“We don’t want these lost summers to happen anymore. We want to have the Everglades restoration done," says Mark Perry. "And its going to take all of us to get together to really put the pressure on, not only the Corps of Engineers, but also the Water Management District to work together to restore the Everglades."
