SFWMD seeking stakeholders to create restoration vision for Caloosahatchee

The South Florida Water Management District (SFWMD) announced a public initiative to collaboratively develop a restoration vision for the Caloosahatchee watershed that focuses on the ecological conditions of the system.

To "achieve an ecological restoration vision" for the Caloosahatchee, the District says it will bring together stakeholders representing government, environmental, business and agricultural entities along with other interested parties. In a series of facilitated workshops starting in early 2013, stakeholders will be asked to focus on determining key ecological attributes in the Caloosahatchee that are fundamental to a restored system. Those who are interested in participating in the visioning process should contact the District.
