Join us to hear an unusual combination of perspectives representing the intersection of human experience and science in the Everglades. Speakers offer insights to move us beyond a simplistic story of agriculture vs. environment in hopes of protecting the ecosystem’s health. The conversation will incorporate images of the photographic and ethnographic exhibition Getting the Water Right: The Culture and Politics of Water in the Everglades, which is on view throughout the Everglades National Park. A collaboration of the prize-winning photographer Adam Nadel and UCLA anthropologist Jessica Cattelino, Getting the Water Right visually and textually explores the interplay of ecological, social, and cultural processes in one of the world’s most iconic and imperiled wetlands ecosystems. Nadel and Cattelino will speak, along with Jim Shore, General Counsel for the Seminole Tribe of Florida, Clewiston City Commissioner Mali Gardner, and FIU biologist Evelyn Gaiser.
