Our Mission is to restore, improve and protect our precious natural resources through civic improvement and educational projects and sounding a strong voice in support of environmental stewardship.

Founders fully supports and attempts to replicate on a local level the objectives and goals of the National Affairs and Legislation and Conservation Committees of the GCA.

The GCA’s legislative position papers are promoted and supported at the state level. Our local efforts are enhanced by membership in the Florida Conservation Coalition and the Science and Environmental Council of Sarasota County.

Founders strives to raise awareness in the community of environmental issues and the promotion of responsible activities in the preservation of the environment.
I pledge to take care of my yard without synthetic pesticides, weed killers, or chemical fertilizers, except on rare occasions, to resolve an infestation or to improve habitat for native plants and wildlife. I also pledge not to flush pharmaceutical drugs or household chemicals down drains and toilets.”
