Dear Friends and Native Plant Enthusiasts,
Protecting our waters, cherished natural areas and wildlife is fundamental to a healthy and vibrant Florida. It’s not too late to make 2013 the year in which you make a difference. How? By helping FNPS and Florida’s Water and Land Legacy Campaign place a critical conservation amendment on the November 2014 ballot.
|Good karma will come back to those who gather signatures!|
To put the Water and Land Conservation Amendment on the 2014 ballot, we will need to gather 480,000 signatures (in addition to those we’ve already collected); we have less than one year to make this happen. Right now, the most important thing you can do to protect our rivers, springs, beaches and the places you hold dear to your hearts is to volunteer.
You have a chance to make sure that state lawmakers continue to invest in conservation by:
- Protecting clean water for people and wildlife,
- Restoring important natural areas like the Everglades, and
- Safeguarding our springs, among other magnificent treasures, for future generations to enjoy.
