The Everglades Headwaters National Wildlife Preserve and Conservation Area

The Florida Native Plant Society has taken a stand on preserving this important land.  Read the letter from FNPS president Ann Redmond. Then please make your comment for support by March 31, 2011.  Your voice WILL count.  Preservation of these lands is good for Florida's native plants & wildlife and it's also good for Florida's business community.

"In order to effectively conserve the native plants and native plant communities of Florida, we must conserve places where the natural processes that shaped and sustained them can be perpetuated. The Refuge proposal embraces the kind of holistic, integrated, landscape-scale approach that is required to achieve such an outcome. The protection of these lands, in combination with the hydrologic restoration envisioned in the Preliminary Project Proposal, will produce benefits that extend well beyond the footprint of the Refuge and complement the goals of the Comprehensive Everglades Restoration Plan."
The Audubon Society has created an easy-to-use form for you to use.


Thanks for your support!!
