Write a Love Letter to Florida

It’s summer in Florida: the time for beachy weekends, sweaty bike rides, and romance. But our love for Florida is no fling.  If you could write a love letter to Florida, what would you say?

We want to hear about the places that are special to you and why you #LoveFlorida. Did you go on vacation to a new place? Do you have a tried-and-true trail? Our Love Letters to Florida campaign is about recognizing the special, unique places that make our state home. These love letters connect us as nature lovers and Conservation Voters. Shared online and through email, we hope to spread that love to others in our community. In the Capitol, we want Legislators and decision-makers to know why Florida’s wild places are worth saving. 

Write a love letter to Florida today with our online form! It's easy: write a short paragraph about what you love most about your favorite park, preserve, or natural area. We may feature your story on our website or social media channel with full credit given. We can’t wait to read your stories!

Don’t know where to start? For inspiration, read some of the Love Letters we've received so far! If sharing on social media, use #LoveFlorida to join in on the conservation conversation.
