Habitat Restoration & Water Quality

In addition to habitat restoration on public lands the Marine Resources Council offers invasive species removal from private property too.  These pepper busting folks can help you restore your shoreline helping repair the lagoon's natural ecosystem.

There are also opportunities for groups and organizations to get involved in these restoration projects.  It's a great team building experience that educates participants about our lagoon at the same time!  More info

Summer is a busy time at the Renee Foosaner Education Center.  This year's camp theme was Pop Art and the camper's labors will be the subject of a professionally mounted exhibition installed in the Ruth Cote Clemente wing of the education center, 1520 Highland Ave. Campers were asked to submit a piece of their work, and the exhibition will include art media such as printmaking, found objects, painting and drawing.

If your business pays for trash pick up you could save money by recycling.  Ask your waste hauler to detail the charges you are paying for trash removal. 

A few simple calculations can tell you how much money you can save by recycling.

Benefits include:

  • Reducing expenses
  • Eliminating volume in the landfills
  • Help Brevard County reach the next milestone in the state's recycling goal.
  • Save the environment
