Gary is the Vice-President of Lee County Rights of Nature, and Joseph is the Vice-Chair and Southwest Florida Regional Director for FRONN.

In November, voters in Orange County, Florida made history by approving a Rights of Nature amendment to their county charter, becoming the largest jurisdiction in the United States to do so. FRONN is working to galvanize other communities to build upon the success of the Orange County initiative and grant legal rights to nature throughout the state.

If you have any questions about this event, please contact Joseph by emailing him at jbonasia@hotmail.com or by replying to this email.
