The weekend will include workshops, activist networking, music (featuring some of our local "outlaws of Florida folk") and more, all on the last free flowing waterway that meets Lake Okeechobee--one of the most beautiful places in all of Florida. Some of the last habitat of the panther, now threatened by roads, development, mining, industrial agriculture, corruption and greed.. Come help us fight for it!
The gathering will be on the edge of Palmdale, Glades County, and will take place in a free primitive camping area east of US 27. (turn right on 3rd Street, and right again at Main Street, down dirt road. Look for signs directing cars to parking in this area.) Dogs are prohibited on this on this land.
Across the street is an established state-owned Fish & Wildlife Commission (FWC) area with a concession, hookups for RVs and car camping, bathrooms, etc, for folks who prefer that. Details, rates, etc can be found here.
More 2011 EF! Winter Rendezvous details and updates on camp guidelines & policy, including a ride-share board, will be up on the evergladesearthfirst.org site shortly.
