Hold the Line

Help us hold the line against irresponsible development projects into the Everglades!

With key allies, Friends of the Everglades has worked diligently to ensure environmentally-sustainable development in South Florida. Most recently, this included stopping a dangerous proposal to allow non-military aviation at Homestead Air Reserve Base, which sits between Biscayne National Park and Everglades National Park, and also a nearby 800-acre industrial development. This sensitive region remains vulnerable to development pressure.

In June, Miami-Dade County commissioners voted to defer an ill-conceived proposal to convert 800 acres of low-lying farmland in Homestead to a giant industrial complex. When the South Dade boondoggle returns to the commission Sept. 22, 2022 it will remain the wrong project in the wrong place.
