Help support Florida Forever funding
Dear friends of Florida’s wild places,
As many of you know, funding for Florida Forever — our state’s conservation land-buying program — was recently eliminated from the state budget. You can help demonstrate public support for reinstating this program’s funding by attending the press conference this Wednesday. Your presence, for just a short while, would help a lot. See details below.

Subject: Press Conference to support Florida Forever funding
Dear Friends of Land Conservation:
Please join former Governor Bob Martinez and the Florida Forever Coalition at a press conference on Wednesday October 14, 11:30 a.m. at Cypress Point Park in Tampa to demonstrate your support for reinstating funding for Florida Forever. Governor Martinez will be joined by County and City officials and legislators from the region who will help decide the future of Florida Forever in the upcoming session. Your presence at this press conference will help send a message that Hillsborough County voters support renewing funding for Florida’s premier land conservation program.
See the attached Advisory for further information.
Thank you for taking time from your other commitments to be there.
All my best,
Tampa Bay Conservancy, Inc.
Acting Executive Director
