The Everglades Coalition's Annual Conference seeks to raise critical, timely issues for in-depth debates in an open, accessible forum. This year's conference will be held in Key Largo, Florida. It begins with an opening reception on 8 January and continues through 11 January 2015. The theme is Send it South: Water for America's Everglades. Key themes include the RESTORE Act and Restoration Funding, Water Policy, Oil Spill Mitigation, Invasive Species Solutions, and the Role of Estuaries. The final day features a number of exciting field excursions that include snorkeling, glass bottom boat tours, and guided walking tours.
