Florida’s vanishing wetlands: A talk by two St. Pete Times reporters

Partly to give props where props are due, and partly so my readers won’t think I’m always dissing the St. Pete Times, I’d urge any enviros out there to hear investigative reporters Craig Pittman and Matthew Waite talk about Florida’s dwindling natural resources tomorrow.

The talk is called “Paving Paradise:Florida’s Vanishing Wetlands and the Failure of No Net Loss” and its based off a book of the same name. The two reporters are the author of that book.

Details on who/what/when/where after the jump.
