The State of Florida has the unique opportunity to purchase this acreage at a guaranteed price due to an binding contract between US Sugar and the State. This opportunity ends October 2015. The Governor CAN and should exercise this purchase. Marjory Stoneman Douglas is known as the "Mother of the Everglades". Governor Scott can be known as the "Savior of the Everglades". Please sign this petition; let us help him earn this title.

Signing this petition will show the Governor the people of Florida care. When we voted for Amendment 1 in 2014, we meant for those funds to go directly towards the purchase of environmentally sensitive lands. There is no other purchase that will affect so many, do so much to improve the quality of our waters and at the same time help restore the Everglades
