After the rally, we’ll spread out over the Capitol for the unique opportunity to bring our water stories directly to public officials and the state’s highest water managers!

Hundreds of civic, water, land and environmental groups will be represented in Tallahassee on February 18.

Only together will we be able to turn the tide from green and red to beautiful blue!
Time is running out for our algae-choked springs, dying Indian River Lagoon, red tide plagued Gulf Coast, slimed St. Johns River, long-suffering Everglades, disappearing coral reefs and dwindling Apalachicola River. The natural lands needed to protect our water quality remain unprotected, and will be unless dedicated Floridians like you speak up for clean water as a human right in Florida.RSVP today and join thousands of other dedicated advocates on February 18! Join the fight to protect Florida’s precious lands and precious clean water!Thanks for taking action to protect our waterways!
P.S. After you take action, be sure to forward this alert to your friends and colleagues!
