Special Program at October 2 Monthly Meeting
Choosing Our Legacy:
Amendment 1 at 7:00 p.m.
Markham Woods Seventh-Day Adventist Church at 505 Markham Woods Rd., Longwood. Free. Open to the public.
Around the world, Florida is known for its unique natural treasures like the Wekiva River Basin. Our springs, rivers, lakes, beaches, and coastal waters are the beautiful face our state presents to attract visitors, new residents and businesses, and what makes Florida our home. Unfortunately, the postcard version of Florida is threatened. After years of neglect, rivers with green toxic algae blooms, polluted springs and unhealthy waterways are marring the face of our state.
In November, the most voters in Florida will make the biggest conservation decision of their lifetime. For the future of our state, and
our beloved Wekiva River Basin, we hope they will vote wisely. If you are not familiar with Amendment 1, or would like more information so you will be an informed voter we hope you will attend our 1-hour program on October 2. Details are below.
Choosing Our Legacy: Understanding Amendment 1 will be the topic of the presentation sponsored by the Friends of the Wekiva River and the Wekiva Wilderness Trust. Pam Meharg, Seminole County Volunteer Coordinator of Florida's Land and Water Legacy campaign will explain how the Florida Water and Land Conservation Amendment will protect Florida's environment and economy.
The presentation will be followed by a question and answer session. Details firstname.lastname@example.org or 407-415-0705.
