Everglades Restoration is complicated. Between the politics and the actual projects, it's hard to keep track of what progress is being made and who is in charge of making the decisions.
The Office of Everglades Restoration Initiative, in partnership with the SFWMD (South Florida Water Management District), the NPS (National Park Service), and the Army Corp of Engineers has made an attempt to be transparent and communicative through their website.
The website www.EvergladesRestoration.gov has accumulated a mass of information for anyone wanting to bone up on the details of Restoration.
