The FGGA is a statewide non-profit trade association created for graduates of the Wakulla Environmental Institute, a facility of Tallahassee Community College. As the Green Guide program is no longer offered, FGGA has expanded it’s membership to include graduates of all three modules of the Florida Master Naturalist series. Certified Green Guides and Florida Master Naturalists are eligible to join after graduation in order to assist in the promotion and marketing of their businesses. Members must adhere to a code of ethics and the “Leave No Trace” principles, which serve to advance personal and professional integrity standards in activities related to ecotourism. The Green Guide Association exists to maintain and monitor those standards as set forth by members. FGGA also provides continuing education opportunities as well as a forum for the exchange of ideas and information among the membership. Ray Cade is the current president, Serge Latour is the vice president, Donna Ingle is Secetary, and Lesley Cox is their treasurer.
