FORT MYERS, Fla. -- More details have been announced about Erin Brockovich's upcoming appearance in Southwest Florida to discuss clean water challenges.

The nationally-known environmental activist and consumer advocate is making several stops across Florida to discuss environmental issues in the state.

On Wednesday, she will be among a panel of speakers at Burroughs Homes and Gardens, from 1 p.m. until 3 p.m. on First Street next to the Edison Bridge.

Other panelists will represent the Calusa Water Keeper, Captains for Clean Water, and the Sanibel Captiva Conservation Foundation. The panel discussion will serve as an opportunity for participants to educate the audience about clean water challenges in Southwest Florida.

There will be limited seating, so guests are encouraged to bring lawn chairs for lawn seating. There is no fee for entry; however any donations will be split between the four participating organizations to help defray the event costs.

Brockovich made an appearance in Stuart, Florida on Sunday, where she announced her support for U.S. Rep. Brian Mast’s "Stop Harmful Discharges Act."

On Monday and Tuesday she has plans to tour Lake Okeechobee and the Everglades.
