The Everglades are oligotrophic.
The canal below provides a direct connect between agriculturally enriched waters to the heart of the Everglades.
The result is a dense and growing thicket of willow and cattails in the middle of what should be pristine Ridge and Slough.
Filling in the canal and cleaning up the water seems like a good start.
It’s part of a plan gaining multi-stakeholder support.
