Save the Serenova Rally - Friday, March 23 2-4pm

There will be a rally for Save the Serenova on Friday, March 23rd, 2-4pm at Little Rd. and State Rd. 54.  You can park at Walmart or at Panera.  Bring a Sign with you.  Doesn't have to be fancy.  Try to spare a couple of hours to help save our Preserve.  

The Serenova Tract was originally set Aside as mitigation for wetlands destroyed by the Suncoast Parkway.  For the last 19 years, the County Board of Commissions decided they wanted the Ridge Road Extension as an evacuation route for hurricanes.  The Save the Serenova group and the Sierra Club are actively rallying, collecting signatures on petitions, speaking at County Commission Meetings and preparing for legal action if it becomes necessary.  Our March - April edition details the history and efforts to prevent the extension.  Please take the time to read and contact your County Commission.  The following article recently appeared in the Laker Lutz News,
