The Big Bend Group of the Florida Chapter is currently being reorganized. We will be posting more information on group meetings, local and regional activities as well as dates for leadership meetings.

Check out the newsletter page to read about a new petition set up to help establish better manage of nutrient pollution from waste water, particularly septic systems that presently are unregulated but have nevertheless been identified as the principal threat (existing and future) to Wakulla's water quality and biological health. Help protect Wakulla Springs and the surrounding waterways by signing this petition ... and please spread the word.

If you would like to become a leader or a volunteer in the new organization, please email the Craig.Diamond@florida.sierraclub.org.
