The Bergeron Everglades Museum and Wildlife Foundation will be a non-profit, educational corporation with the mission to preserve the cultural and wildlife heritage bequeathed to us by the early pioneers of the State of Florida.
To accomplish the goals of the Bergeron Everglades Museum and Wildlife Foundation will require the donations and assistance of those government agencies, politicians, corporations, businessmen and countless citizens who agree with the aims outlined in the Foundation’s Mission. Ronald “Ronnie” M. Bergeron, with is team, will provide the basic planning and driving force to form a non-profit foundation and provide the basic structure of an organization that can establish milestones and funding goals. But, this will be only the beginning. Professionals from many disciplines will be invited to participate and contribute their appropriate skills and efforts in assisting in the implementation of the overall plan.
Ronnie, a successful land developer, has contributed to many community projects over the years and is prepared to spend a considerable amount of his time and resources to launch this project.
He firmly believes in the need to preserve our culture. In a recent article in which Ronnie was profiled, he was quoted as saying – “My heritage, my culture, my roots have never changed. I’m in my airboat every weekend. At the end of this story to realize that now, as always, fifty percent of my time is preserving the Everglades, it’s preserving our culture. My culture.”
The preservation of Everglades culture is more than on man’s dream.
