ctic-14-owlsBaby barn owls with a hearty appetite for rodents that destroy sugarcane were one of the highlights of the CTIC Conservation in Action tour this week in the Everglades Agricultural Area.

We saw sugarcane being planted and harvested with precision, rich black soil, dozens of varieties of lettuce, a concrete post revealing six feet of soil subsidence in 84 years, and some fantastic farmers implementing unbelievably successful best management programs.

It was a long day in one of the country’s most productive agricultural regions but I did get the photos uploaded so you can see some of the sights. I’ve got video, interviews and lots more to share in the coming days.
