Join us for a special screening of "Troubled Waters."
Despite their importance, Florida’s waterways are suffering from significant pollution problems such as fertilizer runoff, poorly treated municipal and industrial wastewater, and failing septic tanks. Combined with the impacts from a rapidly growing population we have a potential recipe for disaster. Consequently, we are standing at a critical crossroads, as the ecological future of Florida’s waters hangs in the balance. Will we continue with the status quo or choose a more sustainable path forward?
What is happening to the St. Johns River is emblematic of the water quality and supply challenges we are facing throughout Florida, highlighting the significant pollution problems that exist and the impending water crisis that we face.
As a result, Troubled Waters is not only a fabulous documentary but a call to action for all of Florida’s rivers, lakes, springs, and aquifers.
Three additional reasons to attend this screening:
- Extra bonus short film -- "The Compost Story" by Kiss the Earth
- Yummy Food -- Make your own pita and enjoy Greek salad and drinks dinner is included in the price.
- Meet like-minded people and experts in your community
