12 Jun 2015. FFT Meetings in Tallahassee

Two good meetings last Wednesday and a big step forward in promoting the mission of Friends of the Florida Trail: I met first with the new U.S. Forest Service Supervisor in Florida, Kelly Russell and her two staff people who focus their energies on the Florida Trail, Shawn Thomas and Megan Eno. We talked about the mission of FFT, the USFS’s budget for the FT and how the mission of FFT fits with the USFS’s task as described by Congress. Then I met with Cynthia Henderson, a lobbyist in Tallahassee. She is going to lead me through unfamiliar waters as we seek to push for the completion of the Florida Trail.
