7 Key Actions, 9 Critical Months

The Florida Campaign is a dedicated Rails-to-Trails Conservancy effort to push the needle in the Sunshine State toward support for trails, biking and walking.

Over the next nine months, we’ll be targeting seven key projects and initiatives that we think could make or break the future of trails in this state. And we need you on board to make sure the voices of people who use and love trails are heard during these critical moments.

Take the simple actions below to get involved in The Florida Campaign to be a part of the grassroots initiative to build the Florida you want to see now—and in the decades to come.

Your voice can make all the difference!

Take Action

Sign The Petition: Get All Aboard Florida On Board With Trails!

The All Aboard Florida statewide high-speed rail project has the potential to transform Florida’s transportation system for the better—but only if it includes a pathway for walking and biking. Pathways near active rail lines are a great way to help connect our communities—and a trail alongside the All Aboard Florida rail project just makes good sense.
Raise your voice in support of Florida’s future!


Amendment 1 Passes!

The people of Florida have shown they overwhelmingly support measures to protect their state’s environmental lands and open spaces! The passage of Amendment 1 on Nov. 4, 2014, will guarantee funding for land and water conservation, and trails, in Florida for the next 20 years. Congratulations Floridians!

Support Rail-with-Trail in Miami!

More than 100 supporters in Miami helped to ensure passage of a city resolution in endorsing the creation of biking and walking pathways alongside the All Aboard Florida rail project. Thank you!

Thank Gov. Scott for Investing in Florida Trails

A Critical Time for Florida

2014 looms as a crucial fork-in-the-road moment for trails, biking and walking in the Sunshine State. Will Florida continue with the plans and policies that have made it the most dangerous state for walking and biking for much of the past decade? Or will it support the innovative and forward-thinking trails and active transportation projects that boost Florida’s tourism base and attract new businesses and residents? Will we finally see a statewide system of trails linking Florida’s city centers and beautiful open spaces?
