USF St. Petersburg’s Environmental Science and Sustainability Club (ESSC) will host the Florida Wildlife Corridor as it presents a showing of “TheForgotten Coast: Return to Wild Florida” on Wednesday, Feb. 3.

The film follows three friends who leave civilization to explore the vast wildlife corridor while following in the footsteps of a wandering Florida black bear. Their journey stretches from the Everglades to the Florida-Alabama border, a rugged thousand-mile journey by foot, paddle, and bike along Florida’s Forgotten Coast.

The film screening will begin at 6:30 p.m. with a brief introduction, followed by the one-hour documentary in the University Student Center Ballroom. The event will conclude with a Q&A session with expedition team members Mallory Dimmitt, FWC executive director, and environmental photojournalist Carlton Ward Jr. Register online.
