Summer Party with a Purpose: Save Split Oak Forest at The Porch!
2022-08-30 @ 17:00 - 19:00Free
Even after all the hard work of the Save Split Oak team, this incredible *TAX FUNDED* Conservation area is still under attack by the Central Florida Expressway. That's Why the Friends of Split Oak Forest are raising money and working with various community partners to retain legal support to attempt to save this critically sensitive habitat.
Thousands of endemic, endangered and Florida native species are living in the Split Oak Forest. This Toll road that CFX is proposing to cut through will only facilitate more urban sprawl and harm the areas essential for our local natural ecosystems to survive. Not to mention, the harmful sprawl will affect our roads, traffic and will not pay for itself, causing taxpayers to subsidize this ridiculous expensive irresponsible growth!
This is why this fight to save this forest is so important. We must raise money and fight FWC and push Orange County and Osceola County to save this forest for everything tax payers funded for years to have it do: create habitat for our wildlife.
Please join us for a Summer Happy Hour celebration of the hard work we have done to rally 86% of the voters to protect this space in 2020, and hype everyone up to save this land AGAIN!
We will have a silent auction including a few of Mary Nesler's pieces, including The Unfolding of Nature.
