CWC Quarterly Meeting: March 28th at 7 p. m.
March 28 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
The Clean Water Coalition of Indian River County will host its second Quarterly Public Meeting on Thursday, March 28th, 2019 7 p. m. at Community Church, 1901 23rd St, Vero Beach, FL 32960.
We have planned a full agenda including a presentation by our featured speaker, Dr. Duane DeFreese, Executive Director of the Indian River Lagoon Council/Indian River Lagoon National Estuary Program (IRL/NEP).
Dr. DeFreese was instrumental in helping to secure National Estuary Program designation for the Indian River Lagoon (IRL) in 1990. In September 2015, he was named Executive Director of the cooperative organization that would be awarded official designation as Indian River Lagoon National Estuary Program.
In this role, Duane works with federal, state and local government agencies, scientific research organizations, academic institutions, elected officials, industry, non-profits like CWC, and the general public. The goal of the IRL/NEP is to develop and implement a science-based restoration strategy for one of the nation’s most threatened estuarine ecosystems.
The presentation will be followed by Q&A, and a short presentation by CWC on the progress we’ve made on several specific initiatives.
Our last meeting was “standing room only.” We wish to thank Community Church for their generosity providing us their larger, and better-equipped facility.
