Become Active: Sites of Environmental Activism

(don't fret, you don't have to join any group unless you choose to)

To be active and effective citizens of the U.S. and Florida requires we be educated about the issues affecting us, our families, and our children.  These lists are one way of getting that education.  Check out the Apr 2011 eSkimmer (Prez Sez) for more info.
