Trailblazers: The Perilous Story of the Tamiami Trail
The Tamiami Trail’s history, culture, devastating impact on the Everglades and plans to mitigate that damage are all featured in this multi media interactive exhibit featuring photographs, historic documents, artifacts and film. This exhibit is curated by Jon Ullman, who has been building coalitions and organizing activists to restore the Everglades for the Sierra Club for 17 years. He organized a broad-based coalition to build the River of Grass Parkway, a 6.5 mile collection of bridges across Tamiami Trail to restore water flow to Everglades National Park and Florida Bay. His advocacy on the campaign to raise US41 helped result in the first raised mile and an additional planned 5.5 mile of bridging.
