Large Turnout at Rally-Lots of Enthusiasm
A large crowd gathered on the steps of the old capitol building in Tallahassee to address the issue of springs, rivers, fracking, land and the environment. Many environmental groups were represented from all over Florida who chartered buses and arranged car pools in order to attend. Many members of Our Santa Fe River made the trip.
The principal message sent to the Florida lawmakers was that we must protect our waters at the source, we must act before our undeveloped areas are gone, and that we must stop pollution where it begins.
