Walk for Mother Earth

Walk in opposition to the proposed construction of the ROGG Bike Path. To educate the public in the significance of the destruction to the land, water, animals, plant life, indigenous burial grounds, battle grounds, and rights that will occur if this path is allowed to be built. Mother Earth needs our help!

This event is being organized by Bobby C. Billie -- Spiritual Leader and Clan Leader, Council of the Original Miccosukee Simanolee Nation Aboriginal Peoples.  Love The Everglades Movement is honored to assist in the event planning.

This event is a 75 mile journey along the Tamiami Trail from Naples to Miami.

We welcome everyone to participate.  The walk will cover 15 miles every day, with regular rest breaks every 5 miles, including meals and refreshments.

Along the way, we will be learning about the impact that the River of Grass Greenway -- an asphalt bike path -- will have on important ecosystems, local businesses, indigenous communities, historical sites, and spirituality.

This page will be updated very soon with more information, so please come back often to stay aware of the progress of our event planning, and how you can contribute.
