Florida Flora

Kayak 10,000 Islands



From NPS: “The Ten Thousand Islands are a labyrinth of water and mangroves. The islands harbor an abundance of life, and the shallows serve as nursery grounds for countless marine species. Boaters should be mindful of the depth of the water, as shallows are common. Finding your way through this area of the park can be difficult, and it is strongly recommended that visitors reference NOAA Charts #11430 and 11432 to assist them.”

Big Cypress National Preserve Hike


From NPS: “The freshwaters of the Big Cypress Swamp, essential to the health of the neighboring Everglades, support the rich marine estuaries along Florida’s southwest coast. Protecting over 729,000 acres of this vast swamp, Big Cypress National Preserve contains a mixture of tropical and temperate plant communities that are home to a diversity of wildlife”

Last Day at Orlando JFO

As part of the FEMA response for  Hurricane Irma, we spent part of the week in Orlando at the Joint Field Office learning how to conduct Environmental and Historic Preservation review of projects requesting  FEMA funding.

I brought along my professional camera for a photo shoot of our GPS and ArcGIS training  taught by Chelsea  (woman in the red, below). We will be using ArcGIS on our tablets for plotting damage assessments on maps.

Last team photo, after  this we split up to various  branch offices.
