What once was, will be again!

That which I was, I AM no longer; That which I AM, I AM becoming!

As a Full Spectrum Movement, we at "Love The Everglades" are doing the work of Everglades Restoration Activism on the Physical, Mental, Emotional & Spiritual levels. We honor the Circle of Life by working to maintain the integrity of all life, including the most fundamental element: the sacred water.
Join us as we come together in a Prayer Circle on behalf of Everglades Matters. Our intentions for this ceremony will be:
1) Purity of the water flowing from the Kissimmee River Valley down through to Florida Bay;
2) Compassion flourishing in the hearts of the decision-makers and stakeholders associated with Everglades Restoration;
3) Growth of the community concerned with Everglades Matters;
4) Integrity & Vitality of the Circle of Life.
As a Universalist ceremony, you are welcome to pray according to your own traditions. Other than the intentions listed above, we are open to the unique expression of your Love & Light. Tap into Universal energies and contribute to an eternal ceremony which honors the Circle of Life.
The property has been protected from development for decades by the dedicated individuals who believed that maintaining a sacred green space full of native life was more valuable than what the developers had to offer. When you walk through the trails you will find yourself under the cover of Hardwood Hammock trees like Live Oak, Cocoplum, Red Maple, and Gumbo Limbo. Continue exploring and you will find a canopy of Pine Rockland trees filling the air with a distinct smell and an extremely diverse undercover. The majority of the East Coast rests on what was once a large Pine Rockland Hammock with Hardwood Hammocks scattered among them. As people began to follow Flagler's Railroad further south, the high grounds were developed and transformed into the city we see now.
Today the Tropical Audubon Society and volunteers have been very active in restoring the property to its natural state resembling an ecosystem that once thrived on the eastern coast of this paradise we call home.
