REMEMBERING AN EVERGLADES WARRIOR NATHANIEL P. REED 1933-2018


“The largest redwood in the forest has fallen and the earth shakes. Fish, fowl, and fauna lament the loss of their greatest, truest friend in every sense of the word. I have never known a person who revered God’s creatures as much as him. His love of all living things is what made him their most passionate advocate. If we could each be but 1/100th of what Nat was in his advocacy of Nature’s gift to us, we could save the planet. What is certain is that he soars with angels now.” — Paul Tudor Jones II, Co-Founder of The Everglades Foundation

THE EVERGLADES FOUNDATION 2018 IMPACT REPORT


“Reed saw the ‘drainand-develop’ mentality of mid-20th century Florida as a direct threat to everything he held dear...”

A

t 6 feet, 5 inches tall, Nathaniel Reed was a giant.

He grew up in wealth and comfort on Hobe Sound, and even as a child, he developed a lifelong love for the spectacular natural beauty and wildlife of his native state. As an adult, his love affair blossomed into a passionate dedication to its preservation.

Shortly after Kirk took office, he reportedly turned to Reed and said, “If you want to change the things that you have been hollering about for the last 15 years in Florida, there’s a desk.” From that moment forward, Reed was Governor Kirk’s $1-a-year environmental advisor. Together, the lanky young patrician and the colorful new governor proceeded to change the way Floridians thought about protecting the world around them. Until then, Reed recalled, “It was rape-and-run, avarice and greed. Make money now, and do not worry about the future.” Their first challenge was a formidable one: a scheme by the Dade County Port Authority for a massive, 39-square-mile jetport just north of Everglades National Park. The gargantuan project would have gobbled up much of the Everglades and the Big Cypress Swamp and destroyed most of the remaining habitat for the Florida panther.

For all his adult life, he was a vocal crusader for Florida’s environment: the health of its wildlife, the purity of its waters, and the sanctity of its natural places.

The jetport project galvanized Florida’s environmental movement like nothing before, breathing life into a sleeping giant that has become the best hope for preserving the precious beauty of this wonderful place.

Reed saw the “drain-anddevelop” mentality of mid-20th century Florida as a direct threat to everything he held dear, and he became a fiery and articulate advocate for restraint.

In the process of convincing then-President Nixon to abandon the airport project, Reed formed an unusual friendship with the President, who appointed him Assistant Secretary of the Interior.

In 1966, he joined Claude Kirk, then a candidate for governor, as he crisscrossed the Sunshine State in the first successful Florida GOP gubernatorial campaign since Reconstruction.

There, he secured a ban on the pesticide DDT, saved 80 million acres in Alaska and — over Chinese food — gathered a group of like-minded environmentalists who sketched out what is now

known as the Endangered Species Act, which Nixon signed in 1973. Twenty-six years ago, he joined us and the late George Barley to form The Everglades Foundation. He graced our Board of Directors until July 2018, when he died in Quebec doing what he loved most — fly fishing for salmon in a remote river. On the day he passed away, Florida lost a true friend. As Shakespeare wrote: “His life was gentle, and the elements mixed so well in him that Nature might stand up and say to all the world, ‘This was a man.’” (Julius Caesar, Act 5, Scene 5).

I

n the quarter century that The Everglades Foundation has been fighting to restore America’s Everglades, we have never been better positioned than we are today – nor have the challenges facing us been greater. I was privileged to serve on the Transition Team for the Environment for then-Governorelect Ron DeSantis and, more recently, delighted by the governor’s $625 million budget request for Everglades restoration and clean water initiatives. We’ve come a long way in the past two years… consider Tallahassee – two years ago, the Florida Legislature passed Senate Bill 10 after more than 20,000 Everglades advocates made their feelings known to their local representatives, both in person and by calls and emails. Under the leadership of then-Senate President Joe Negron, Senate Bill 10 expedited the Everglades Reservoir, a critical Everglades restoration project, and committed Florida to its $800 million share of funding for the project. From there, people rallied to get the project authorized by Congress, which we secured in record time with the passage of the 2018 Water Resources Development Act. While we have secured authorization of the project, the task ahead will be to convince the White House and Congress to fund it and other Everglades restoration projects that are behind schedule. Nearly two decades ago, the federal government promised to split the cost of Everglades restoration with the State of Florida, but it has never lived up to that promise.

10

We need $200 million per year from Washington, D.C. to ensure Everglades restoration projects get finished, not just started. Here too, your voice could make the critical difference. While we tackle these critical objectives in Tallahassee and Washington, we continue to buttress our science and educational efforts. Our science team remains the most formidable in the state focusing on Everglades restoration, and our education program continues to expand its work with students from kindergarten through graduate school, all to create the next generation of Everglades advocates. I’m particularly excited by the progress of the remaining competitors in The George Barley Water Prize, who are advancing the science and economics of phosphorus pollution removal with each passing day. There’s a lot at stake: for the competitors, a $10 million incentive prize; and for mankind, our best hope for removing algae-causing phosphorus from freshwater supplies. I know you join me in wishing them Godspeed. For these and other endeavors, we rely on the generous support and commitment of thousands of dedicated people who value America’s Everglades. Without you, none of our work would be possible. Be assured, we are grateful.

t is with great pride that I greet you as The Everglades Foundation’s Chief Operating Officer and Vice President of Policy. While I am new in this role, I am not new to The Everglades Foundation. The Foundation’s Founding Directors were among my mentors when I was a young advocate in the 1990s, and I joined the Board of Directors myself in 2003, a role I proudly held for four years. I left the Board to represent Broward County on the Governing Board of the South Florida Water Management District under Governor Charlie Crist and afterward became the Director of Everglades Restoration under both President Barack Obama and President Donald Trump. My tour of duty in the government came to an end last April

“Now, in the 22nd year of my Everglades career, I find myself doing some of the most enjoyable, impactful, inspiring and exciting work I have ever done.”

when I decided to return to the Foundation as part of its leadership team. The Foundation I found when I returned in 2018 was so different from the Foundation I left in 2007. Its goals for the Everglades were as ambitious as ever and its fighting spirit was as fresh and passionate as ever, but my, how it had grown! A bigger board! A bigger, even more talented staff! Exciting new programs, including The George Barley Water Prize and Everglades Literacy Program! Now, in the 22nd year of my Everglades career, I find myself doing some of the most enjoyable, impactful, inspiring and exciting work I have ever done. I have the privilege of working with young activists, renowned scientists, education experts, as well as long-time friends and mentors. I am surrounded by people who work each and every day toward the singular goal of restoring America’s Everglades and, in doing so, protecting Florida’s economy and securing its drinking water supply. I am grateful to Eric Eikenberg and our wonderful Board for welcoming me back to the Foundation. I look forward to the months and years ahead, working with The Everglades Foundation team and its friends and supporters to make our shared dream of a restored Everglades a reality.

RECREATIONAL FISHING IN FLORIDA BAY

THE EVERGLADES FOUNDATION 2018 IMPACT REPORT


ECONOMIC SIGNIFICANCE AND ANGLER PERSPECTIVES By Dr. Andrew Stainback

EVERGLADES RESTORATION IS ESSENTIAL TO PROTECTING THE HEALTH OF FLORIDA BAY AND ENSURING FUTURE ECONOMIC BENEFITS DERIVED FROM THIS UNIQUE ESTUARY.

F

lorida Bay is located off the southern tip of the Florida peninsula and is mostly contained within the bounds of Everglades National Park. Its unique ecological characteristics make Florida Bay a popular tourist destination for recreational anglers throughout the world. However, the bay is sensitive to large-scale seagrass die-offs linked to a reduction of freshwater flowing into the bay from the Everglades - for instance, large sea-grass die-offs occurred in the late 1980s and in 2015 following droughts in south Florida. These periodic die-offs pose a significant threat to fish populations in the bay. Everglades restoration would help restore the historic flow of freshwater into Florida Bay and reduce the chance of these die-offs occurring. To better understand what is at stake, a study was conducted to estimate the economic contribution that recreational fishing in the bay contributes to the region. Results of the study indicate that recreational fishing on Florida Bay is an important economic asset, generating about $439 million in annual economic activity and supporting over 4,100 jobs. The study also surveyed anglers about their opinions of the current status of the bay. When asked about how Florida Bay had changed over the previous five years, almost 70% of anglers reported reduced fishing quality. A majority of anglers indicated that they thought that water pollution and poor water quality posed the most significant threats to Florida Bay. Protecting Florida Bay through Everglades restoration is imperative if we want the important economic benefits from the bay to continue into the future.

THE ART OF COMMUNICATING SCIENCE By Dr. Steve Davis THERE IS A MYTH THAT SCIENTISTS ARE UNABLE TO COMMUNICATE WHAT THEY KNOW IN TERMS THAT THE REST OF THE WORLD CAN UNDERSTAND. AS A SCIENTIST AND A SCIENCE COMMUNICATOR, I TRY TO DISPEL THIS MYTH.

A

s students, we scientists spent much of our time learning about science and developing technical and analytical skills. The rest is spent learning to communicate with one another through technical jargon, statistics, equations and graphs. We continue to hone these skills early in our professional career, because it is a way to demonstrate what we know and share what we learn with… you guessed it, other scientists. The problem is simple. Scientists are not taught to communicate in ways that teachers or even journalists are taught to communicate to the general public. Until global issues such as declining biodiversity and water pollution revealed a pressing need to get scientific information out to the masses, communication has not been a priority for scientists. While a few champions have taken on this challenge and thrived, there are few incentives for many of our nation’s best scientists to become better communicators.

of my career studying the Everglades, but this was also a place that meant more to me than just another research site. As a wide-eyed graduate student in 1995, I saw the Everglades as a vast subtropical wilderness teeming with wildlife. However, over time, I began to see the Everglades for what it had become – a broken, suffering version of its former self that desperately needed our help.

For the first 10 years of my professional career, I was a professor of wetland ecology in the Wildlife & Fisheries Department at Texas A&M University, and after six grueling years of grant-writing, research and publishing, I was awarded tenure. Ironically, at that same time, I began to grow restless in academia and was ready for a different professional challenge.

Fast-forward 10 years, and I found myself on stage at Hawk’s Cay Resort in the Florida Keys being introduced as the Everglades Coalition’s recipient of the 2019 Grassroots Activism Award. The award was not in recognition of my science but an acknowledgment of my ability to translate science and communicate the needs of Florida Bay and the Greater Everglades to a wide audience.

The perfect opportunity came in 2009, when The Everglades Foundation was looking for an ecologist who could do good science and also communicate to a variety of audiences about why it was essential to restore and protect the Everglades. It helped that I had spent much

In my 20-plus years as a scientist, this is the most meaningful professional recognition I have received, as it suggests my work has had an impact beyond the realm of science. It also proves that scientists can be recognized as effective communicators. It just takes time and passion.

AMERICA’S EVERGLADES

SUMMIT T

he Foundation’s primary advocacy objectives in 2018 were authorization of the Everglades Reservoir as part of the 2018 Water Resources Development Act (WRDA) and an increase in federal funding for the Everglades restoration program.

AMERICA’S EVERGLADES

SUMMIT Washington, D.C. April 24-25, 2018

In April, a contingent of Florida anglers, corporate executives from major outdoor recreation companies and concerned citizens joined us for America’s Everglades Summit to make our voices heard in the nation’s capital. Following a seminar to educate attendees and the media about the crisis facing the Everglades, hundreds of volunteer advocates fanned out across both sides of Capitol Hill to meet personally with members of Congress. We found a receptive audience, as members of Congress and staff understood the problems of toxic blue-green algae choking Florida’s once-pristine waters and the solutions that Everglades restoration provides.

As the WRDA legislation moved forward in Congress, the Foundation urged the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and the Office of Management and Budget to accelerate their reviews of the Everglades Reservoir project. We also mobilized our 20,000-plus online supporters to send a simple message: Make sure the Everglades Reservoir is included in WRDA. Victory occurred on October 23, 2018, when the President signed the WRDA into law, including provisions authorizing the Everglades Reservoir. The State of Florida has already dedicated its 50 percent cost commitment to Everglades restoration and we have been asking that Washington match that investment. Recently, Governor Ron DeSantis and Florida Senators Marco Rubio and Rick Scott have formally requested the same level of support from the President and Congress. Increasing Federal funding for Everglades restoration will be a major priority for the Foundation in 2019-2020.

Leah Chalhoub Milhoan (lower right) and her students.

HOW DID BEING A JOHN MARSHALL EVERGLADES INTERN IMPACT YOUR FUTURE? Our John Marshall intern class met with U.S. Representative Ron Klein in 2008 to discuss how policy and legislation impacts the Everglades. That opportunity and experience led to a position as Grants Specialist and Outreach Coordinator in his office. My work focused on the environment, education, nonprofits and small business communities. More recently, I went back to school to get my master’s degree along with my teacher certification and attended an Outdoor Educator program based on the Everglades Literacy Program and curriculum. Being a John Marshall Intern during my undergraduate studies was instrumental in my personal and professional life. It greatly increased my understanding of the environment and provided connections to our leaders in Everglades science, policy and education. WHAT ARE YOU DOING TODAY? Today, I take my love of learning to the classroom, teaching Earth & Space Science and Principles of Engineering at Forest Hill Community High School. I am currently working on incorporating an annual class field trip to the Everglades with my students. I want to thank John and Nancy Marshall for this opportunity. Many years ago, they invested in a young woman’s life with this internship program. And, to the many fine friends and donors who help make it possible – I offer my sincerest appreciation. Please know, that every day I work to pay it forward teaching the young minds of tomorrow about this remarkable treasure called the Everglades. THE EVERGLADES FOUNDATION 2018 IMPACT REPORT

MY EXPERIENCE AS A FOREVERGLADES FELLOW 2018 FIU FOREVERGLADES FELLOW By Chloe’ Vorseth

I

n the days leading up to my graduation from the University of Kentucky with a degree in natural resources and environmental science, I knew that I wanted to pursue a career path that would feed my passion for conservation and sustainability of natural resources.

and development of close relationships with the rest of the team at The Everglades Foundation have inspired me to continue to build an impactful career in natural resource conservation and sustainability.

When the opportunity arose to pursue a master’s degree in environmental studies at Florida International University, while simultaneously assisting the science team at The Everglades Foundation with research through the ForEverglades Scholarship and Fellowship Program, I immediately applied. Fortunately, I was accepted, and walked into my first day at the Foundation six months later. This was the best decision I have made for my personal and professional development, sending me on a path that not only allows me to contribute to environmental advocacy, but to develop personal independence, confidence, and better define my career goals. My first year as a FIU ForEverglades Fellow provided me the opportunity to participate in rigorous technical analysis. While the technical skills learned through this experience will certainly be useful in my future career, I will also appreciate the importance of curiosity, passion and creativity in the research process, as well as the close-knit community of Everglades warriors in south Florida. Guidance from my mentor, economist Dr. Andrew Stainback,

THE GEORGE BARLEY

WATER PRIZE “The effectiveness of the Prize is apparent; we’re only three stages in and we’ve already managed to move the needle on the economics of phosphorus removal. With these teams, the sky is the limit.” - Loren Parra, Director of The George Barley Water Prize

T

he Everglades Foundation’s Board of Directors launched the $10 million George Barley Water Prize in July 2016 with a clear goal: inspire innovative, cost-effective solutions to the global problem of phosphorus pollution, which affects rivers, lakes and wetlands around the world. The Foundation’s unprecedented commitment to cleaner water attracted 104 applicants from 13 countries on four continents. During the first two stages of the competition (2016-2017), the field was narrowed to 10 teams that would put their technologies to the test during the Pilot Phase in Canada. This third stage began in February 2018 on the Holland Marsh, in Bradford West Gwillimbury. The outdoor laboratory makes up a part of the Lake Simcoe watershed, and is located about an hour north of Toronto, Canada. With the support of the Ontario Ministry of Environment, Conservation and Parks, the Town of Bradford, and the Township of King, competitors constructed their technologies to withstand the harsh Canadian winter. Throughout the 90-day Pilot Phase, each team tested between 2,500 to 8,500 gallons of water per day, proving the resilience and adaptability of their technologies as they endured freezing temperatures. This was a significant step towards commercialization, and a critical component of moving forward to the final stage of the competition.

In October 2018, contestants and collaborators gathered in Toronto for a technical workshop during Ontario’s Water Innovation Week and the Pilot Phase awards ceremony. The final teams, who would move on to compete in The Grand Challenge for the ultimate $10 million prize, were announced.

The George Barley Water Prize final four and first runner-up have been named and will now move on to compete in The Grand Challenge GREENWATER SOLUTION, INC., FLORIDA Green Water Solution, Inc., a private enterprise based in Wellington, Florida, has developed BioPhree©, a proprietary environmentally inert system that can remove phosphorus to 10 parts per billion even with very high inputs. The process is scalable, and has been applied in industrial and municipal settings.

UNIVERSITY OF IDAHO - CLEAN WATER MACHINE, IDAHO The Clean Water Machine from the University of Idaho has an innovative reactive filtration system that uses biochar (an activated charcoal), an iron-oxide adsorption filter, and ozone to remove phosphorus to extremely low levels and produce byproducts that can help food production.

U.S. GEOLOGICAL SURVEY, LEETOWN SCIENCE CENTER, WEST VIRGINIA The U.S. Geological Survey team developed a method for removing phosphorus using mine drainage ochre to develop an iron-oxide filtration bed. Besides turning a waste product from mining into a valuable resource, the method can produce a marketable phosphate fertilizer.

46

WETSUS NAFRAD, LEEUWARDEN, THE NETHERLANDS Wetsus, a European Center of Excellence for sustainable water technologies, has developed the NaFRAd technology that uses advanced filtration, flocculation, and high-capacity adsorption on a special granular iron-oxide material to push effluent phosphorus levels to extremely low levels, while producing calcium phosphate, an inorganic fertilizer, as a byproduct.

ZEROPHOS, NANJING, CHINA PILOT PHASE RUNNER-UP A team from Nanjing University in Nanjing, China contributed a late entry with ZeroPhos, a technology based on lanthanum, a rare earth with filtration properties. By putting lanthanum into a re-usable, stable, adsorption filter, ZeroPhos can take phosphorus down to extremely low levels at a low cost.

“These finalists represent our best hope for solving the algae crisis that is choking waterways worldwide.” — Eric Eikenberg, CEO,

FUNDRAISING EVENTS

FOREVERGLADES PALM BEACH Jimmy Buffett and the Coral Reefer Band headlined the ForEverglades Palm Beach Benefit on February 17, 2018, at The Breakers in Palm Beach. The event celebrated the Foundation’s 25th anniversary and raised over $3 million for Everglades science, advocacy and education. It was appropriate for Buffett to star in the celebration, having been one of our Foundation’s supporters from the beginning with founders Paul Jones and the late George Barley, and a member of our Board of Directors since 2005. “Jimmy Buffett is a longtime friend and tireless advocate for America’s Everglades,” said Foundation CEO Eric Eikenberg. “We couldn’t be more excited to welcome him to the stage to help raise awareness for Everglades restoration.”
