Stop Rick Scott's Plan To Turn State Parks Into Profit Centers

Florida’s state parks are a public treasure, yet Gov. Scott and his hand-picked Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) Secretary see them as little more than profit centers. That’s why they’re considering allowing hunting in all 161 state parks in addition to timber operations, cattle grazing, and more.

Sign the petition to the Florida Legislature below and urge them to reject Rick Scott’s plans to turn our public parks into private profit centers.

Petition To The Florida Legislature

We the undersigned urge you to oppose any legislation that would indiscriminately open up Florida's state parks to hunting, timber operations, cattle grazing, or any short-term profit making scheme.

Our state parks are natural treasures. As Floridians, our tax dollars have set aside these public places precisely so we can enjoy their natural beauty and protect our land, water, and wildlife. State parks exist for the public interest, not for private gain.
