DEC 7 thru DEC 8
Two well-known activists / conservationists are leading the charge to protect the Big Cypress National Preserve and the rights of the indigenous and non-indigenous families who live among it. Betty Osceola and Rev. Houston R. Cypress are organizing a two-day prayer walk beginning at 9 a.m. Saturday, December 7, and going through the evening of Sunday, December 8, 2019. The walk along Loop Road will start just off the Tamiami Trail in the Big Cypress National Preserve and last until 7 p.m. the following day.
In addition to prayer, the goals are to educate and call attention to the plight of indigenous families and non-indigenous landholders who may be at risk to lose their lands in the Big Cypress Preserve as a result of the Western Everglades Restoration Project (WERP). Walkers will be able to camp overnight, and an evening chat led by the participants is set to happen Saturday evening.
Exact address is 50940 Loop Road, Ochopee, FL 34141. For more information, call 786-897-4582 or visit www.LoveTheEverglades.org.
