Former Lee County Commissioner Ray Judah will discuss the restoration of our natural waters, on Saturday, May 11 at the Happehatchee Center in Estero. Judah, a Southwest Florida leader who balances conservation concerns with the needs of the business community, will share his current views on protecting our local waterways. Ray Judah established and supports the successful Corkscrew Regional Ecosystem Watershed Land Trust and advocates for the Conservation 2020 Program, which acquires environmentally sensitive lands to protect water supplies and open space. Among Judah's many awards are: "Conservationist of the Year," the "Pathfinder Award" from the Urban Land Institute, and the "Presidential Advocacy Award" from the Florida Association of Counties. With lengthy experience in government and the community, Ray Judah provides a valuable bird's eye view to guide environmentalists.
