Cassani To Speak at Lovers Key Tonight


Join Calusa Waterkeeper John Cassani as he presents and discusses “Eternal Vigilance”, a 26-minute  documentary film describing the challenges facing our region’s waterways. The presentation takes place tonight from 6P to 8P. Here are all the details…

The film is a visually powerful  reminder that ordinary people can do extraordinary things to protect and improve southwest Florida’s  rivers, estuaries and shorelines.

Eternal Vigilance” details the first efforts to protect Estero Bay Aquatic Preserve and its tributaries. The  30th Anniversary of the designation of Estero Bay’s nine tributaries as “Outstanding Florida Waters” in  2020 should have been cause for celebration. However, all nine tributaries, as well as the Estero Bay, are  impaired and at risk of further degradation. This film and discussion will explore why our waterways are  impaired, and highlights how citizens are working to improve and protect them.

Eternal Vigilance” was produced in 2020 by Calusa Waterkeeper, Inc. a non-profit organization  dedicated to the protection of the near-shore waters of Lee County, and their watersheds.

The event is the second in the series, “What You See on the Land, Lands In the Sea”,  monthly public conversations about our coastal waterways. Come learn and be a part of the solutions. Presentations are held in the Community Room of the new Welcome and Discovery Center at Lovers Key  State Park, 6:30 – 8:00 pm. Doors open at 5:30. Tickets are on sale for $30 through Eventbrite. All  proceeds support this and other educational programs sponsored by Friends of Lovers Key, a non-profit  501(c)3 Citizen Support Organization. To register go to HERE.
