Since 1982 the Friends of the Wekiva River have worked to protect, preserve, and restore the natural functions and beauty of the Wekiva River system.
As a result of our
leadership and the cooperation of our river partners, the Wekiva is designated a Florida Outstanding Water, a Florida Canoe Trail, a Florida Wild and
Scenic River, and a
National Wild and Scenic River with over 70,000 acres of state-protected lands in the basin. Despite this ample recognition, the Wekiva River and its
fragile ecosystem face numerous threats.
These include the fragmentation and loss of habitat, declines in spring flow, degradation in water quality, and wildlife mortality on the roads.
Last Push for Vote YES on Amendment 1
Election Day: Nov. 4th
It is hard to believe that election day is just around the corner and
that all of our hard work on The Vote Yes On 1 campaign will come to
an end. Until then though we have one last request for help from you.
We need volunteers to help out at the early voting locations in
Seminole County. Volunteers are needed to hold signs and/or hand out
palm cards to voters as they come to vote. We also will need help on
election day, November 4th.
We need your help so we can be assured of a Big Win on November 4th.
Early voting begins on October 20 and ends November 2. If you can
help out once again , please email me and I will get you supplied
with signs and palm cards. Let's push hard to the finish on this one.
