Orvis is working in close partnership with the Everglades Foundation to achieve a long-term solution to the diversion of freshwater overflows from Lake Okeechobee. These overflows have led to massive toxic algae blooms in the St. Lucie and Caloosahatchee estuaries, and devastating drought in the Everglades.  In a powerful open letter to Florida lawmakers published in the Miami Herald, Orvis CEO Perk Perkins urges support for legislation to save this ecological treasure.
