Virtual advocacy is working!

The success of our first Clean Water Conversation last week is proof that no matter the changes happening in the world as a result of the coronavirus, people still care about protecting Florida’s most precious resources.

We are exactly one week away from #GivingTuesdayNow. The 24-hour giving event, happening May 5th, is a global day of giving inspired by the unprecedented need caused by COVID-19. This is your chance to support important efforts to educate the public and protect our waterways despite all distractions.

Will you help us expand our virtual efforts by making a donation on May 5th during #GivingTuesdayNow?

Your generosity will support the growth of our newly relaunched Young Friends of the Everglades virtual education portal and will help us keep the spotlight on important topics and public participation opportunities through additional Clean Water Conversations.

We can’t do this without you. Mark your calendars for May 5, one week from today, and get ready to give back to Florida’s fight for clean water!
