Chapter Meeting - Florida's Water and Land Legacy Campaign

We'll have a short business meeting before our speaker,

Aliki Moncrief, the Field Director of the Florida’s Water and Land Legacy will speak to us about the Florida Land and Water Campaign.  The Florida Trail Association has already endorsed this initiative, and so have most of the chapters.   I hope you can attend and support this important effort on behalf of all Florida conservationists.

From the website http://floridawaterlandlegacy.org/index.php:

We're a coalition of individual volunteers and conservation organizations from across the state working to put the Florida Water and Land Conservation Amendment on the November 2014 ballot.

For years, Floridians have worked to keep our streams, springs and lakes clean for people and wildlife.  We've worked hard to restore treasures like the Everglades and to protect our beaches and shores.  Yet, deep and continued budget cuts are putting our most cherished waters and lands in serious jeopardy.

State funds historically allocated to protecting and restoring critical conservation and restoration efforts will run dry unless voters pass the Water and Land Conservation Amendment.  Without it, we could lose much of what makes Florida special.

    Lisa Williams was our speaker tonight, and she did a great job of explaining the importance of this campaign. I think we were all in agreement that we would do what we could to spread the word.

    Bill gave a nice introduction of his plans to grow our chapter, while Cary talked about the upcoming work hike at Swift Creek and the potential reroute at Camp Blanding.

    Great to see some new members and a few returning ones!

    Leslie, I'd like to co-opt some of the meeting to discuss leading activities, use of Meetup, etc... May I have 20 minutes or so?

    Does the room have a white board?

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
