OFFER LOCAL SUPPORT: Join forces to save our manatees, pelicans and dolphins
Attention pro-environmentalists in Brevard County! The Sierra Club is joining forces with other organizations, locally and around the state, to pressure the Florida legislature to stop giving polluters a free pass, especially when it comes to the nutrient (Nitrogen and Phosphorus) pollution that is fueling the green slime and brown and red tides that are plaguing the Indian River Lagoon and other water bodies in Brevard and around the state!Please join us for a local rally in front of the office of State Rep Steve Crisafulli,2460 N Courtenay Pkwy, Ste 108, Merritt Island, 32953, where concerned citizens, and waterfront businesses can join environmental advocates to bring attention to the victims of Florida's water quality crisis--which now include bottlenose dolphins, too! We will voice our opposition to HB 7115 and SB 7034, the bills now sprinting toward passage in the state legislature which would exclude 3/4ths of all Florida waters, and the people who live along them, from protection against toxic algae outbreaks. We will end the event by delivering letters and personal messages to the representative or his aides.We will have slime posters, and signs, but, if you can, please bring your own signs and/or photos of slime in our waterways!Simultaneous events will also be taking place in Orlando, Sarasota, St Petersburg, Jacksonville, Ft Myers, Palm City, Gainesville, Ft. Lauderdale, and West Palm Beach--all communities in Florida at risk from toxic algae fueled by nutrient pollution! Please join us and be part of this state-wide event! Contact Linda Behret at [masked] to RSVP or for more information! Thanks for all you do!!
