The Florida Wildlife Corridor’s documentary, “The Last Green Thread,” will be shown in a free screening at Tampa Theatre at 7:30 p.m. on Thursday, April 25. (Doors open at 6:30 p.m.)
The film documents the journey of three friends, Mallory Lykes Dimmit, Joe Guthrie and Carlton Ward, a Hyde Park United Methodist member. Their April 2018 “Heartlands to Headwater” expedition was made along the thin green band near the Interstate 4 corridor that connects two of the state’s largest wetlands systems—the Everglades’ headwaters just south of Orlando and the Green Swamp just northeast of Tampa.
A panel discussion and audience Q & A will be held at the conclusion of the film. Members of the panel include:
- Kathy Castor, US House of Representatives, Florida 14th Congressional District; Chair, U.S. House Select Committee on the Climate Crisis
- Mallory Lykes Dimmit, President, Florida Wildlife Corridor; VP of Strategic Development, Lykes Bros., Inc.
- Carlton Ward, founder of the Florida Wildlife Corridor; conservation photographer; National Geographic Explorer
- Ed Sherwood, Executive Director, Tampa Bay Estuary Program
- Will Wellman, Director of Adult Faith Formation, Palma Ceia Presbyterian Church; ordained minister
This event is FREE and open to the public. Seating will be provided on a first-come, first-served basis. No tickets or reservations are necessary. Hyde Park United Methodist is one of the sponsors of this event.
