Florida painter, Everglades, Marco Island, artist Jo-Ann Sanborn


What do you know? Corner of the Glades painting by Everglades artist JoAnn Sanborn

Corner of the Glades
Acrylic on Canvas, 24"x36"

What do you really know about the Everglades? They are mysterious and sometimes difficult to enjoy, with a variety of biting insects, the thorny, prickly undergrowth, shallow waterways everywhere you turn and the potential for SNAKES! Yes, at least 26 varieties!

But the Everglades have a special place in our world. We've abused this planet resource and the Everglades need to be saved and restored as a valuable and contributing part of our world.

The Everglades Foundation, an organization that wants to inspire restoration, has a great quiz to help you find out what you know about the Everglades and to fill in information gaps. You can take the Everglades quiz here. Let me know how you did and what surprised you!

It would be my pleasure, Judie. Thanks for your support! J

Thanks, Helen. I do, too. There are so many wonderful places, and all we need is a little respect for them!
