ABOUT

SYMPOSIUM

JOHN MARSHALL EVERGLADES

The Comprehensive Everglades Restoration Plan (CERP) was authorized in 2000 with the objective to “restore, preserve, and protect the South Florida ecosystem while providing for other water-related needs of the region, including water supply and flood protection.” The plan laid out a 35-year timeline for 68 components with region-wide benefits to be completed. Now, 20 years into the plan – with some progress made, though each project remains incomplete – Everglades restoration must be accelerated. This year’s John Marshall Everglades Symposium will explore the past, present, and future of CERP; the key players driving Everglades restoration, and what must be done to bring restoration to full fruition.
