In his presentation, The Conservation Movement in Florida, Jonathan Webber details the collaborative and successful effort to pass the Water and Land Conservation Amendment in 2014, followed shortly thereafter by the Legislator's misappropriation of LATF funds. Jon discusses some of the successes and setbacks the conservation community has experienced in the years since then and some of the ongoing efforts to restore funding to Florida Forever. He will also be talking about wins from the most recent Legislative Session and how the conservation community can begin to prepare for the upcoming 2018 Elections.
