scale of the ssj group
SCALE OF THE SSJ GROUP
  • The Largest Sierra Group in the Eastern U.S., geographically.
  • The biggest city is Gainesville..the biggest county is Marion, by population.
  • From the Georgia border to Homosassa Springs is Approx. 140 miles. From Cedar Key to East Palatka is about 100 miles. We cover over 10,00o square miles. More than the state of Massachusetts.
  • North Central Florida is a hotbed of environmental issues. A new issue every week (it seems).
  • We have the valuable natural resources (water, cheap land, and low taxes).
  • Migration is still coming. North and South, with subsequent development.
  • 2 of the 15 Executive Committee (EXCOM ) members live outside of Alachua County. Historically, few have come from out of the area. Subsequently, our attention tends to be “Gainesville-centric”. This hurts our membership. It is difficult to ask members who live up to 60 miles away to attend EXCOM meetings monthly, and it is difficult to provide service to the outlying areas.
  • Suggested Smaller Groups:
  • Alachua, Bradford, Union, Clay, Gilchrist, and Dixie Counties.
  • Putnam, Marion, Levy, and Citrus Counties.
  • Columbia, Hamilton, Baker, Suwannee, Union, and Bradford Counties.

how we function
How we function:
  • Attend public meetings: SSJ should have a representative who states our position at public meetings. We need help. Strict rules for representing Sierra Club.
  • Petition drives : The Airboat Ordinance/Oelrich. Our letter-writing worked. Sierrans as far away as Big Cypress joined our letter-writing campaign, producing several thousand letters to the Florida Senate Environmental Protection Committee.
  • Publicity:. Newspapers, Radio and TV stations, Internet, “Social” media.

We need help.

  • Political endorsements.
  • Social events. For our members and future members.
  • Outings : Bring attention to landmarks and natural wonders.
  • Outreach to like-minded organizations + our membership. We help them. They help us in return.
  • Funding ( Lawsuits, events, publicity, public education). We need help.
