Veteran Friends of Fakahatchee member Sam Peters (above, center) is the newest member of the Fakahatchee Adventure team. Sam has earned rave reviews on TripAdvisor for leading swamp walks and tram tours this season. One visitor described him as “a true naturalist with plenty of depth and breadth to really teach you something about the different habitats at the Fak.”
Notes Friends president Francine Stevens: “Sam shows his support of the FOF mission to educate the public about the importance of preserving the fragile ecology of the Fakahatchee every time he drives all the way from Miami to lead a swamp walk. All of our leaders are dedicated naturalists, but he literally goes the extra mile.”
Sam’s dedication runs in the family. His wife, Cynthia (above, left) is a former FOF board member who served as chairman of the event committee. At right is Boardwalk Vision Committee chairman Tom Maish.
