Take Action...Now or Neverglades

By now, most or all of you know what is going on down in FL. I'm sure some of you are thinking, "Morgan, you're a little late on posting this here." True, but its because I have been blasting social media with this the whole time and decided there may be a few readers that don't do social media or may miss the posts on the TLTFF FB page (thanks Facebook for throttling down exposure of my page since I don't pay you). So for those of you who haven't had the chance to either read up or sign, here is the "Now or Everglades Declaration" via Orvis. Many others are sharing this but I think Orvis has done a great job of using their outlets to spread the word.

(See ” “Blackwater” Discharges Threaten Florida’s Indian River Lagoon and St. Lucie Inlet.”) The cause of this disaster is discharges of untreated fresh water from Lake Okeechobee into the Caloosahatchee and St. Lucie estuaries. Traditionally, this water flowed southward, through the Everglades.
