ERIC EIKENBERG

PRESIDENT & CEO, EVERGLADES FOUNDATION, PALMETTO BAY

The Everglades Foundation is a non-profit research and advocacy organization that seeks to restore and protect the Everglades through science, advocacy and education. Founded by a group of outdoor enthusiasts in 1993, it has become one of Florida’s most influential environmental groups, partnering with the boating, fishing and real estate industries. Eikenberg, formerly chief of staff for former U.S. Rep Clay Shaw and former Gov. Charlie Crist, has been the organization’s president for eight years.

CIVIC EFFORT Working to get the Everglades reservoir planned and ultimately authorized in 2018 has been one of my organization’s greatest achievements. The next four years are critical in maintaining momentum.
NEW HOBBY Spending the last 12 months working from home, I have spent a considerable amount of time in my back yard and have found myself bird-watching.
