Currently, the Everglades is one of the most threatened natural
habitat in the western hemisphere. Residential development, water
management and agricultural use have shifted natural water patterns
and have altered the vitality of the ecosystem. With an alarming
number of people moving into South Florida every year, we need to
come together and help to protect the Everglades for our survival.

In addition there will be vendors and small businesses promoting and
selling their merchandise, including The Wallflower Gallery,
Ragamufyn, 75rabbit, Xango Juice and selected independent corporations
