The Florida Conservation Coalition and Florida Blue invite you to join former U.S. Senator Bob Graham and Florida’s conservation community at “Speak up for Florida Forever,” a call to action to preserve and protect Florida’s natural lands and working landscapes. This free family-friendly event will take place at Camp Milton Historic Preserve and features prominent speakers, live music, guided tours of Camp Milton’s biologically diverse nature trails and boardwalk, educational programs for children and families, food trucks, and environmental exhibitors. In addition to learning about the importance of preserving natural lands, guests will also be able to enjoy a glimpse into life during the Civil War with presentations by historical period reenactors and Civil War artillery demonstrations (cannon!!).

Parking is available at Camp Milton, however we encourage you to ride your bike to the event on the beautiful Jacksonville-Baldwin Trail.

This event is being brought to you by the Florida Conservation Coalition in partnership with 1000 Friends of Florida, North Florida Land Trust, Timucuan Parks Foundation, St Johns Riverkeeper, Defenders of Wildlife, and Florida Wildlife Corridor. Florida Blue has generously agreed to help sponsor this community event.

10AM – 4PM, free and open to the public at 1225 Halsema Rd N.
