Florida Water Stories
Florida has had a long and difficult relationship with water, from early attempts to turn water into land to present day concerns about water quality and sea level rise. The Fort Pierce Yacht Club and the Manatee Observation and Education Center are pleased to host “Florida Water Stories” presented by University of Florida Master Lecturer Dr. Steven Noll. Dr. Noll will discuss the history of water in Florida and look at how that history shapes the future. This program is part of the Eco Evenings speakers series. Each Eco Evening lecture begins with a beer and wine social at 6:30 pm followed by a presentation at 7:00 pm.
This event is funded in part by a Florida Humanities Community Project Grant, in partnership with the Manatee Observation and Education Center.
Date/time: February 20, 2020 @ 6:30 pm
