Restoring the Indian River Lagoon: Keystone Habitats of a National Treasure
The Manatee Observation and Education Center (MOEC) was established in 1996 to promote understanding and responsible actions for the protection of the Treasure Coast’s fragile ecosystems and their inhabitants. As part of a program funded in part by Florida Humanities, MOEC will host Jeffrey L. Beal, Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission, to present “Restoring the Indian River Lagoon: Keystone Habitats of a National Treasure.” Human activities are wreaking havoc on one of North America’s most diverse estuaries, reducing seagrasses, creating harmful algal blooms, and more. Join MOEC to learn how biologists are fighting back by restoring some of the Lagoon’s most critical habitats. This program is part of the Eco Evenings speaker series. Each evening begins with a social at 6:30 pm followed by a presentation at 7:00 pm.
