The Clinic for the Rehabilitation of Wildlife weekly Speaker Series continues Tuesday, April 19 with “The Effects of Water Mismanagement” presented by Captain Chris Wittman, co-founder and director of outreach and engagement at Captains for Clean Water.
In 2016, a couple of fishing guides had enough of Florida’s poor water management practices devastating the estuaries upon which we rely. These fishing guides created a nonprofit organization now fighting to restore and protect our water resources. This talk featuring Captain Chris Wittman, Co-Founder and Director of Outreach and Engagement at Captains for Clean Water, will discuss the advanced efforts and initiatives to protect these valuable resources and our way of life for future generations.
Speaker Series programs begin at 4:15 p.m. and are approximately one hour in length. This talk will be presented in person at CROW’s Visitor Education Center and will also be offered virtually over Zoom so advanced registration is required. Admission per person or device is $10 plus applicable taxes and fees. To reserve your spot, visit the CROW website or call CROW’s Visitor Education Center at 239-472-3644 ext.#222.
CROW’s 2022 Speaker Series features weekly programs, offered January through April, hosting professionals from across Southwest Florida who engage, educate and entertain participants with information about local conservation initiatives.
