Lunch and Learn: Update on the State of the Lagoon

Friday, May 11, 2018

Bo Platt & Wayne Mills of the Marine Resources Council will give us an update on lagoon health and the restoration efforts along the Treasure Coast. Bo and Wayne are also members of the Brevard Indian River Lagoon Coalition, and worked to get a 1/2 cent sales tax passed there. The tax runs for ten years and all the money goes into lagoon restoration efforts. It is expected to bring in over $300 million over a ten year period. Get an update on the health of the lagoon and how community members are working to preserve our waters. This is a free event. Bring lunch and bring a friend!
