Learn How Your Community Can Help!

Water is essential to life, and in Florida, it is also an economic engine that fuels $94 billion in annual tourism spending and $12 billion in local and state sales, hotel, and excise taxes, according to Rockport Analytics LLC. When our waterways suffer, our economy suffers, too.
Our Speaker
John Cassani, Calusa Waterkeeper
John’s professional career as an ecologist started here in Lee County in 1978 after receiving degrees in Biology and Fish and Wildlife. From 1978 to 2014, he worked as a resource manager for local government, managing waterways of Southwest Florida. He has authored peer-reviewed scientific publications and popular media sources on resource management, history, water policy, and conservation issues.
His service on advisory boards, commitment to community, and involvement with land and water conservation have led to recognition from various civic groups. In November 2016, John accepted the position of Calusa Waterkeeper, a member of the international Waterkeeper Alliance.
The ECCL and Calusa Waterkeeper John Cassani invite you to learn the facts about our substandard water quality, what causes it, and the ways your community can improve it.
