March 2018 – The South Florida paddling community has lost a devoted and inspirational leader with the passing of Keith Wasserman.
The news of Keith’s passing in February 2017 has just been conveyed to his many friends and fellow backcountry explorers. We will deeply miss Keith’s quiet devotion to the beautiful South Florida wilderness areas that provide a welcome respite from the frenzy and noise of daily life in a major metropolitan area. Using his canoe and his camera, Keith revealed and shared many breathtakingly beautiful pristine pathways within our cherished parks.
Keith also spent countless hours sharing his knowledge and expertise as the founder of the online community here GladesGoDeep, a site that has created a true family of those committed to seeking out adventure, preserving nature and protecting wildlife for future generations to treasure and explore.
In honor of Keith and his passion for nature and the wilderness, GladesGoDeep will be maintained through the support of the South Florida National Parks Trust which has committed to fund all costs for the continuation of the website.
We salute our friend, explorer and mentor Keith Wasserman and send our condolences to his family and friends.
