Image of Everglades with title Third Thursday Lecture Series and Museum of the Everglades

This presentation explores the rare combination of technology and tenacity that ultimately yielded the miracle of modern engineering known as the Tamiami Trail. An analysis of the machinery and materials employed as well as rarely-seen photos and firsthand accounts of the work will leave no doubt as to why the massive project was—at the time—compared to the building of the Panama Canal.

Seating is limited at the museum due to COVID-19 social distancing restrictions. Guests should arrive at least 5 minutes prior to the beginning of the program or their seats may be given to others waiting on stand-by. Please use the RSVP forms to attend the event virtually via live streaming. An additional presentation has been added on April 28 – CLICK HERE to reserve a seat at the museum for that lecture.
