Join us for an eye opening experience with Sierra Club and IDEAS For Us (Orlando and UCF branches) as we journey around Apopka viewing some real life and local examples of environmental injustice. We will be holding a debrief to discuss and go over what we saw, as well as speak on how we can work to change these injustices.

Please bring a lunch, water, sunscreen, and wear long pants and closed toed shoes. We will be meeting at this location at 10am, then taking a 3 to 4 hour tour of Apopka in a provided van. Carpooling is available, please reach out to [email protected]
We recommend that everyone dress comfortably for outside by wearing long pants (though, we do not spend a lot of time outside), a comfortable shirt, hat and/or sunglasses, closed-toe shoes, and bring non-toxic bug spray and sunscreen if they are sensitive to mosquitoes and/or the sun. (Also, folks should be careful of ants.)
It is good to bring water for everyone or be sure to encourage everyone to bring their own water bottle. Snacks are good, too.
The tour should take a minimum of 3 hours; possibly 4 hours.
