Speak Up For Florida Forever

  • Camp Milton Lake Preserve 1225 Halsema Road North Jacksonville, FL, 32220 United States

Preserving environmentally significant lands naturally helps to clean our waters, recharge our aquifers, provide wildlife habitat and enhance our quality of life. We must fund Florida Forever or risk losing Florida’s remaining natural places and the ecosystem services they provide.

Join former U.S. Senator Bob Graham and Florida’s conservation community at “Speak up for Florida Forever,” a call to action to preserve and protect Florida’s natural lands and working landscapes. This free family-friendly event will take place at Camp Milton Historic Preserve and features prominent speakers, live music, guided tours of Camp Milton’s biodiverse nature trails and boardwalk, food trucks, and environmental exhibitors. In addition to learning about the importance of preserving natural lands, guests will also be able to enjoy a glimpse into life during the Civil War with presentations by historical period reenactors.

Parking is available at Camp Milton, however, we encourage you to ride your bike to the event on the beautiful Jacksonville-Baldwin Trail.

This event is being brought to you by the Florida Conservation Coalition in partnership with 1000 Friends of Florida, North Florida Land Trust, Timicuan Parks Foundation, St Johns Riverkeeper, Defenders of Wildlife, and Florida Wildlife Corridor.

CEJ will be an exhibitor at this event.
