Dear FCC Members,
On Saturday, hundreds of people and over 20 conservation organizations elevated the call for the State of Florida to conserve more land and fund Florida Forever at historic levels. Former Florida Governor and U.S. Senator Bob Graham and Florida Senator Audrey Gibson, among other notable speakers, lamented current funding levels for the state’s preeminent land preservation program and spoke eloquently about why natural lands are so important to Florida’s economy and way of life.
Thank you to all of you who joined us on Saturday. If you could not attend but would like to learn a little more about Saturday’s event, please see this fantastic interview News 4 Jax aired with Marc Hudson, the land protection director of the North Florida Land Trust.
We will continue in our quest to make sure environmentally sensitive lands are protected for future generations of Floridians. Please email Jane Atkinson at firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to be more involved.
