E-mail Print PDF

Come participate in our Second Annual Science Saturday Festival to be held on Saturday, October 11th, 2014. It will run from 10am-2pm at Lake Ella.


The idea is to have the day be entertaining, educational and as hands-on and kid-friendly as safely possible. Lake Ella is a 12 acre recreational park in the center of Tallahassee.


Around the lake are picnic shelters, a site for community activities such as amateur astronomy and exercising and a 0.6 mi paved walking trail that completely encircles the lake with its 3 fountains. Visitors also enjoy the many ducks, geese and turtles that live there.


Going on around this event will be music, Mickey's Lakeside Cafe and Black Dog Café, cottages of quaint businesses, There will be 25 different organizations presenting hands on science activities

Save Our Water!

It's all about the water! Do you live near an oil well or fracking site or pipeline? Did BP oil wash up on your favorite beach or marsh? Is Lake Okeechobee overflow mucking up your livelihood — turning the rivers toxic and the lagoon into a dead-zone? Got green slime clogging your springs? Are agriculture and industry polluting your waters and threatening your tribal lands? Are you working to protect your community’s waters or struggling to restore the Everglades? Then plan to join us and BRING YOUR TROUBLED WATER to the Governor’s Home in Naples on the Gulf of Mexico, Saturday, October 18, at 4:00 PM. Please label your water with date and location.

Global Frackdown Tally

E-mail Print PDF


This Years Global Frackdown will be held during the Science Saturday Festival at Lake Ella. October 11th 2014, 11:00AM. Amongst the other science activities, we'll have a table focused on the dangers of fracking and the efforts to stop fracking in Florida. At 11:00, come out to the lake to gather in numbers, hold a press event, and then spread out to gather postcards asking our leaders to ban fracking in Florida!


The Global Frackdown will unite concerned residents everywhere for a day of action on October 11, 2014 to send a message to elected officials across the globe that we want a future powered by clean, renewable energy — not dirty, polluting fossil fuels. The journey to a renewable energy future will not be fueled by aggressively expanding the use of extreme technologies to extract oil and gas. Climate scientists warn that continued extraction and burning of fossil fuels will lead to catastrophic climate change.


Participants in the Global Frackdown will organize events in their communities to challenge decision makers to oppose fracking, united around a common mission statement calling for a ban on fracking and investment in a clean energy future. The first Global Frackdown in September 2012 brought together 200 community actions in over 20 countries to challenge fracking. The second Global Frackdown in October 2013, was even bigger with over 250 actions in 30 countries spanning six continents.
