Support Florida Sierra Club's Vote Yes on 1 Campaign

One of the best things anyone can do to ensure that our lawmakers protect Florida's rivers, springs, and coastal waters is to support Amendment 1 on the Nov 4 ballot, which sets aside 33%, or 1/3, of all monies received for document stamp taxes on real estate sales to conservation of water and land.
Although a law saying this should happen is on the books, recently the money has not been set aside for this purpose.  That's why Sierra Club Florida, and the Turtle Coast Group, are supporting Amendment 1: the Water and Land Conservation Amendment.

Winning voter approval of Amendment 1 is fundamental to keeping our rivers, beaches, and wildlife areas healthy, and our drinking water clean for the next 20 years.  To help reach as many voters as possible, Sierra Club Florida has pledged to match up to $10,000 for every dollar contributed by our individual members.

Please make your contribution today as every dollar matters and no amount is too small!  Click on the following link to make an online donation.  This donation will be matched by Sierra Club Florida.
