SRQ DAILY WEDNESDAY PHILANTHROPY EDITION WEDNESDAY AUG 29, 2018

The Surfrider Foundation Suncoast Chapter (SFSC) is inviting the public out this Wednesday August 29, at 6pm at Lelu’s Coffee on Siesta Key for a presentation by Ray Judah and interactive discussion on the challenges and solutions to addressing the red tide and blue green algae that’s decimating our estuaries, rivers and fisheries. Judah is a community servant with an extensive background in the natural sciences as well as in the political arena as an elected official. A former environmental land planner with the Lee County Department of Community Development and a Lee County Commissioner from 1988 to 2012, Judah is a strong advocate for providing a balance between growth management and responsible stewardship of our precious natural resources. A brief list of some of Judah’s accomplishments and awards include: promoted the designation of the 96,000 acre Density Reduction Groundwater Resource Area of Southwest Florida, co-founded the Corkscrew Regional Ecosystem Watershed Land Trust, spearheaded the effort to establish the Conservation 2020 program to protect critical water resources, open space and wildlife habitat and is a recognized expert and advocate for restoration of the historic southern flow-way to the Everglades and responsible management of Lake Okeechobee.
