MRC's Brown Bag Lunch Speaker Series

Feb 2, 2015

The Marine Resources Council’s Brown Bag Lunch speaker series is held at noon on the 1st Tuesday of every month at the Ted Moorhead Lagoon House, 3275 Dixie Highway NE, Palm Bay. MRC has been organizing Brown Bag Lunch presentations in the community since 1991 thanks to community members like you. Check out MRC's Event Calendar for more information.


Thousands of concerned citizens gathered this past Saturday to show their support for the Indian River Lagoon. Since January of this year, hundreds of manatees, dolphins and brown pelicans have died. Experts don’t know the exact cause of the die off but suspect it is a combination of numerous factors including but not limited to; fertilizer runoff, septic tanks, algae blooms, climate change and more.

 

People gathered at eight different locations all along the Indian River Lagoon, which runs 156 miles and through 6 counties on the east coast of Florida. The event was part of the National Estuaries day celebration. Hands Across the Lagoon was organized to call attention to the toxic waters and declining state of our lagoon and to ask local leaders to make the health of the lagoon a top priority.
