If you care about the trees on Amelia Island, please attend to show your support for the revised ordinance. Don’t think someone else will do it for you. It’s up to us to demonstrate how much we care about the trees and the significant role they play in our island’s ecology and preservation. Be there Tuesday, May 15 at 6:00pm.
