Lake Okeechobee has been in the news lately, unfortunately for the wrong reasons. Harmful algal blooms, estuary dumps, and concerns about
Hoover Dike safety have given the public and decision makers a jaded view of Florida’s greatest lake. Paul will talk about how the lake got to this
point, the wonders of Okeechobee that are overshadowed by controversies, and what Audubon and our society needs to do to restore one of
Florida’s iconic treasures.
Dr. Paul Gray has been with Audubon Florida for 24 years and is a science coordinator for the Everglades Restoration Program. He is recognized
as a foremost authority on Lake Okeechobee.
