A Life Spent Loving, Honoring & Protecting Nature

For 20 years Butch -- known as a "Real Florida Cracker" -- worked as a guide and a
photographer in the Everglades where he planned fishing, hunting, photography, bird
watching and site-seeing tours by airboat. His intimate knowledge of the fragile ecosystem
landed him feature spots on PM Magazine and Ford Truck Times, and he was one-time
president of the Concerned Citizens for the Everglades.

Butch Harrison was born on Feb. 17, 1934 in South Florida and spent much of his life near the ocean, in the Florida Keys and in the Everglades. His life spent handling cattle and horses, catching alligators, fishing, gigging frogs and serving as an airboat operator and guide in the Everglades was fodder for many colorful stories, which he tells in his new DVD available on this website entitled, "Butch Harrison, Florida Cracker Storyteller."

During his time in South Florida, Butch advocated against the development of privately owned
land within the Everglades and took Senator Edmund Musky on a tour of the ‘Glades while an environmental study of the Miami Airport was underway. His service as a guide was also put to good use in helping search and rescue teams find downed aircraft in the ‘Glades.
