      I have camped and hiked this forest for 50 years with friends and family. We have enough oil exploration in our waters, we do not need it in our forest. The forest is NOT yours, it belongs to the people!

      As a Florida native, I am painfully aware of how fragile our porous geology is. Please protect Florida from mining damage.

      I floated the river last spring and spent time in the campground. This is simply greed on the part of oil companies and politicians who should be figuring out their investments in renewable energy resources. That is the future, not destroying recreational areas and wildlife for the last few drops of oil and natural gas.

      I believe that some things should be left well enough alone.Blackwater River is a wonderful place that I have had the pleasure of enjoying for many decades.It should be protected and preserved for the wildlife that live there as well as for the people who enjoy the naturistic aspects of it.
