Review for Rainbow River Conservation Inc, Dunnellon, FL, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

When we bought our property near Dunnellon in the early 1970's, we weren't aware of what a treasure the Rainbow River was to the area. We soon found out! Not long after we moved here in 1986 a neighbor suggested we join RRC. That was the beginning of an association that continues to this day. I have served on the board for many years, and have been president and vice-president for several terms. I shudder to think what our treasure might be like if our group hadn't been so diligent in "serving and protecting" the river. At the present time we are fighting a threat that we feel would do irreparable harm to the river, in the form of a large development alongside the river. Unfortunately the present political atmosphere is not favorable to environmental protection, due to the economic issues we have all just gone through. Thank goodness for groups like ours that have stood up for the environment in Florida!

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

persuade more of our population to join us in our goals.
