As South Floridians, we boast beautiful beaches and tropical temperatures, but often fail to acknowledge the sweeping beauty of the Florida Everglades. As the earth undergoes accelerated change, understanding the landscape’s function in human and ecologic survival is essential.
Pedro Ramos, superintendent of Everglades National Park, is visiting University of Miami School of Communication on Tuesday, March 29, to speak with students about the Everglades and the National Park Services.
Ramos’ visit is an opportunity for students studying journalism to put their skills to work. Professor Joseph B. Treaster tasked students in his class to ask Ramos questions during his visit and then write a hard news lead on his remarks.
