A Florida Wildlife Corridor Expedition exhibition will open today (Wednesday) and continues through Jan. 4, 2014, at South Florida State College’s Museum of Florida Art and Culture. The event is free and open to the public.

This exhibition, featuring the photography of Carlton Ward Jr., highlights the journey of four explorers who traveled 1,000 miles in 100 days. They ventured from the Everglades to Okefenokee Swamp in southern Georgia with a goal of raising awareness of the possibility to protect and restore connected landscapes throughout the Florida Peninsula and create a viable wildlife corridor from the Everglades to Georgia.

A special feature will be a Third Thursday program at 7:30 p.m. on Dec. 5. The evening will include a screening of the recently released documentary film, “The Florida Wildlife Corridor Expedition: Everglades to Okefenokee,” by Elam Stoltzfus and a panel discussion moderated by Florida Wildlife Corridor team member Joe Guthrie.

Funding for the program was provided through a grant from the Florida Humanities Council with funds from the National Endowment for the Humanities.

The SFSC Museum of Florida Art and Culture is open to the public Wednesday through Friday from 12:30 to 4:30 p.m., and by appointment for group tours. SFSC Artist Series patrons may visit the museum one hour prior to each performance.
