Last spring Meristem hosted Eric Eikenberg, CEO of the Everglades Foundation, at a learning luncheon to share information about the Foundation’s commitment to restore and protect the Everglades. As a follow-up, the Foundation invited attendees of the spring luncheon to experience the Everglades firsthand on a day-long eco-tour.
The tour was led by Katherine Caskey and Dr. Kristie Wendelberger from the Everglades Foundation along with Captain Bert from Tigertail Boat Tours. An incredible day was spent in the heart of the Everglades and on the Miccosukee reservation. Attendees all came away with a greater appreciation of the need to preserve South Florida’s waters and for the good work that is being done.
