Light the Shore Event at Naples Pier

Light the Shore, a peaceful, bipartisan gathering and candlelight vigil on the Naples Pier to mourn our dead sea life and an effort to raise awareness of the toxic algae crisis, will be held from 7:30 to 10 p.m., November 3. The event is being presented by Collier Clean Water, which also coordinated Hands Along the Water Naples.

Attendees will begin to form a single-file line around 7 a.m. Each participant will be given a candle and march to the end of the pier, circle it and continue in a single-file line to exit it. They will then form a line to light the entire shoreline for 15 minutes in remembrance of the animals that have died and to strongly oppose the discharges from Lake Okeechobee. Participants are encouraged to wear blue, decorate their shirts and bring signs.

Organizers hope this event will plant seeds of compassion and spread awareness that motivate and inspire our politicians to authorize the Everglades Agricultural Area Reservoir project as a vital addition to the Central Everglades Project.

$5 suggested donation. For more information or to RSVP (requested), visit Facebook.com/events/244866972900347.
