The Sierra Club is a national organization dedicated to Enjoying, Exploring and Protecting the Planet. Founded by legendary conservationist John Muir in 1892, it is now the nation's largest and most influential grassroots environmental organization -- with more than two million members and supporters. Our successes range from protecting millions of acres of wilderness to helping pass the Clean Air Act, Clean Water Act, and Endangered Species Act.

The Everglades & Amendment 1

A simple 4 minute video on exactly what's going on, and what can be done to save our Everglades, as well as our east & west coast estuaries. Everything was set to go, until "politics & money" kicked in.

BIG SUGAR SUMMIT - June 20, 2015 9am-5pm in West Palm Beach

The Big Sugar Summit will pull the curtain back on the sugar industry. We'll dig as deep into the muck as we can, in one day, to uncover just how profoundly Big Sugar affects us all. You'll get the facts regarding the sugar industry's influence and impact on Florida and its citizens. Our speakers will represent a wide spectrum of the political, academic, scientific and advocacy realms.

$10 registration fee includes lunch. Register now at www.eventbrite.com/e/big-sugar-summit-tickets-16963454148. There will be a social hour immediately after the program at 5pm.


At the South Florida Water Commission meeting on April 9, the Commission concluded that buying the U.S. Sugar land was too expensive and would take too long. It is important that you keep contacting your State Representatives, Senators and the Governor! Let them know the importance of buying the land so the water can move south into the Everglades.
