  • March 13
  • Florida State Capitol, 400 S. Monroe Street, Tallahassee, FL 32399
Ride the Bus for Clean Water!

The St. Johns River is threatened by numerous issues, including nutrient and bacteria overload, water withdrawals, habitat degradation, and dredging. These threats need to be addressed, and the time to act is NOW! Our Florida legislators are back in session and they need to hear your river story.

St. Johns RIVERKEEPER and fellow river advocates are joining partners on March 13th for Reclaiming Florida’s Future for All Advocacy Day at the Statehouse in Tallahassee. During our bus ride from Jacksonville, St. Johns Riverkeeper staff will provide training and talking points to help bus riders become effective advocates.

At the Capitol, you will have the opportunity to meet your state legislators and ask them to protect all of St. Johns River’s waterways, including its springs and tributaries. Bring family and friends with you to support water conservation efforts. 2019 is off to a clean start for our state’s waters, but we need to ensure the St. Johns River is not forgotten!

Date: Wednesday, March 13, 2019
Bus Meeting Time: 7:30 am (Charter Bus departs promptly at 8:00 am and will return to Jacksonville by 6:00 pm)
Bus Meeting Location: Lowe’s, 5155 Lenox Ave, Jacksonville, FL 32205
