What started out to be, what could have been, a night in the rainforest - turned into an evening in the glistening garden when the clouds opened up and sunshine broke through at the Civic Association and Everglades Foundation reception, hosted by Susanne and Douglas Durst.

Bob Wright, Civic Association CEO; Mrs. Durst, a Civic Association Director, and Eric Eikenberg, CEO of the Everglades Foundation made brief remarks about the importance of the partnership between the Civic Association and the Everglades Foundation.

Mrs. Durst and Mr. Eikenberg spoke passionately about the need to protect the Everglades. "70 million people in South Florida get our drinking water from this national treasure," said Mr. Eikenberg. "We must do all we can to implement the Comprehensive Everglades Restoration Plan."
