With the decline of the Indian River Lagoon, ORCA’s efforts in the Indian River Lagoon have been front and center in the newspapers.. Thanks to ORCA’s research programs, in conjunction with ORCA’s Kilroy water monitoring systems, we have been able to gather information about the sources of pollution causing the degradation of our once healthy, one of a kind ecosystem and are optimistic for the future of the lagoon.
There will be a question and answer session after the formal presentation and attendees will have an opportunity to look over ORCA’s educational displays before and after the presentation.
This event is sponsored by Treasure Coast Newspapers/TCPalm, Sunrise Ford, DiBartolomeo, McBee, Hartley & Barnes, CPAs and Central Window of Vero
