Abstract

Oral history interview with Ed Carlson, director emeritus of the Corkscrew Swamp Sanctuary. In this interview, Ed Carlson discusses his youth exploring the Everglades and how it led to his working for Audubon Florida and the National Audubon Society. He recounts his initial position at Corkscrew Swamp Sanctuary that led to his position as manager of the sanctuary, his contributions to accessibility for visitors through the overseeing the building of its boardwalk, and working with politicians and donors to maintain Corkscrew Swamp’s protected status through land acquisition. Ed also discusses the formation of CREW (Corkscrew Regional Ecosystem Watershed) and its impact on nature conservancy in Florida.
