The Sanibel-Captiva Conservation Foundation will host “Evenings at the Homestead: The Water Crisis of 2018” on Nov. 15 from 7 to 8 p.m. in the pavilion at the Bailey Homestead Preserve.
The panel of guest speakers will address the red ride in the Gulf of Mexico, freshwater, toxic blue-green algae in the Caloosahatchee, and devastating effects on marine life and coastal economy.
Learn about what happened from a scientific, policy and business perspective; the formation and recovery of a dead zone offshore in the Gulf; and steps the public can all take to prevent and minimize future disturbances to regional water quality.
There will be presentations and a panel discussion with:
– Rae Ann Wessel, SCCF Natural Resource policy director
– Dr. Eric Milbrandt, SCCF Marine Lab director
– James Evans, director of Natural Resources for the city of Sanibel
– Dr. Rick Bartleson, SCCF research scientist
– Kelly Sloan, SCCF Sea Turtle Program coordinator
Refreshments will be available at 6:30 p.m.
Tickets are $10 and can be purchased through Eventbrite at www.eventbrite.com.
