The American Sportfishing Association and Keep Florida Fishing (KFF) need your help!

Please join Wednesday, June 1st and Thursday, June 2nd at the Our Florida Reefs (OFR) community working group meetings being held at the Fern Forest Nature Center in Coconut Creek, Florida.

While public comment will be accepted on both days, we specifically ask for your participation during the public comment period scheduled for 9:30 a.m. on Wednesday, June 1. Arrive by 8:00 a.m. for coffee and donuts. The first 100 people to arrive will get a free Keep Florida Fishing T-shirt.
