John Heim organized the local Hands across the Sand on Fort Myers Beach in Florida.

John has worked tirelessly to promote clean water consciousness for the Southwest Florida Gulf waters and more recently has taken up an energetic and inspired campaign to stop the flow of dirty "fresh" water from Lake Okeechobee into the gulf, which creates the unhealthy cancerous algae growth called red tide killing sea life and the gulf waters upon which the local economy depends.

John organizes local clean water rallies and participated in a bus trip to D.C. to speak with congress. He organizes the River Kidz West Coast group in Florida.
