Necessary Funding for Everglades Restoration

The Everglades Foundation is asking for your help in getting funding restored for the Everglades.  The Florida Senate recently proposed a budget that ELIMINATES funding for critical Everglades Restoration projects. This will negatively impact recreational fishing and fish habitats in the Everglades, Florida Bay, the Florida Keys, and even the east and west coasts of Florida that receive effluent from Lake Okeechobee. Plus, the lack of restoration funds will impact the safety of the drinking water supply for South Florida. Everglades Foundation has set up a web site that makes it easy for you to help: www.fundtheeverglades.com  And after you visit their web site, send a letter, email, or call Tallahassee and tell them to restore the funding.
