Kissimmee Basin: the Northern Everglades: the film by Elam Stoltzfus 

Although many stories have been told about the Everglades from its drainage to restoration,  few have been told about where it all begins: the Kissimmee River Basin. 

Restoration and protection of this vast, watery landscape may well hold the key to restoration of the Greater Everglades ecosystem.

The Kissimmee Basin: the Northern Everglades is a film produced by Elam Stoltzfus of Live Oak Production Group.

The film contains lush and ethereal cinematography and rare historic photos to bring the Kissimmee’s story into focus.

In-depth interviews bring you face-to-face with the engineers, activists, ranchers, military personnel and politicians critical in this river’s history.

Orange Audubon Society supports the effort to create a national wildlife refuge in the Kissimmee Basin.

For our May program, we are delighted to host the filmmaker and show this beautiful film. For more information go to:

    It was a very well done film, and we all enjoyed the importance of the Kissimmee Basin as part of the Everglades system.

    Excellent film! It had beautiful scenery and a well told story of the Kissimmee River Basin in a style that reminded me of Ken Burns' programs. It had interesting interviews of various stakeholders mixed with footage of impressive scenery.

    This will be the premiere of The Kissimmee Basin: the Northern Everglades and the filmmakers will be here to answer questions. Elam Stoltzfus was among those who make the arduous Florida Wildlife Corridor Expedition. This is going to be a great program!
