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: www.NorthernEverglades.com
