AMENDMENT 1: Water and Land Conservation
Dedicates funds to acquire and restore Florida conservation and recreation lands

Funds the Land Acquisition Trust Fund to acquire, restore, improve, and manage conservation lands including wetlands and forests; fish and wildlife habitat; lands protecting water resources and drinking water sources, including the Everglades, and the water quality of rivers, lakes, and streams; beaches and shores; outdoor recreational lands; working farms and ranches; and historic or geologic sites, by dedicating 33 percent of net revenues from the existing excise tax on documents for 20 years.

Volunteer with Florida's Water and Land Legacy

Florida's Water and Land Conservation Amendment was passed by an overwhelming 75% of Florida voters on November 4, 2014, marking an historic opportunity to protect our rivers, lakes and springs and restore natural treasures like the Everglades.

Now, we need to educate our state lawmakers about the intent of Amendment 1 and ensure that existing water and land conservation programs receive Amendment 1 funding.  

Sign up to volunteer with us today! Florida's Water and Land Legacy will provide you with all the materials you need to meet with your legislator.
