As you probably know by now, Orvis has partnered with the Everglades Foundation to help save the amazing ecosystem of the Everglades, and we have asked our customers to help through a matching-grant program.

Yesterday, the Florida Senate Appropriations Committee approved revised Senate Bill 10, sponsored by Senator Rob Bradley (R-Fleming Island), which sets forth a science-based process to identifying land needed for the Everglades Agricultural Area (EAA) Reservoir.

“Revisions to Senate Bill 10 have removed opponents’ objections to this bill and we believe this legislation is not only positioned for ultimate passage, but also for delivering positive impact on the restoration of America’s Everglades,” said The Everglades Foundation CEO Eric Eikenberg.
