JOHN MARSHALL EVERGLADES
OVERVIEW OF THIS YEAR'S PROGRAM
Restoration of America’s Everglades is vital to South Florida’s drinking water supply, the 2,000 species of plants and animals that inhabit the ecosystem, and Florida’s real estate, recreation, and tourism-based economy. Everglades restoration is also a key component in the fight against climate change.
At this year’s John Marshall Everglades Symposium, a panel of scientists from The Everglades Foundation, federal and state agencies, and universities will discuss how the world’s largest ecosystem restoration plan will help mitigate the impacts of climate change.

JOHN MARSHALL EVERGLADES SYMPOSIUM
John Marshall and Nancy Marshall inspired The Everglades Foundation’s adoption of two key programs including an 8-week undergraduate internship program, and symposia focused on the vital importance of Everglades restoration. After John’s passing in 2016, The Everglades Foundation honored his leadership and legacy by naming its annual symposium, “The John Marshall Everglades Symposium.”
