FCVEF created the Gems Report as an educational tool for Florida Legislators. Over the years, Florida has saved some incredible places that improve our quality of life and make Florida a great place to live. In this report, we celebrate a few of Florida Forever's successes. We also highlight some remaining gems that can only be saved with increased investments in the Florida Forever program. Our lawmakers have the power to build on past conservation successes and save our remaining gems for future generations, but they must act now!

BOGO - Buy One, Give One! Your purchase of a Gems Report ensures that FCVEF is able to hand-deliver a copy to every legislator at the Capitol.
