Arbor Day in Florida

Florida has celebrated Arbor Day since 1886 and has one of the first Arbor Day celebrations in the nation, on the third Friday in January. Over 200 communities in Florida celebrate Arbor Day, either as a stand-alone event or in conjunction with some other occasion.

  Founded in 1952, Brevard’s Humane Society (Central Brevard Humane Society) is the community’s oldest established animal welfare organization. A “no kill for space” shelter, the Humane Society is dedicated to “speaking for those who cannot speak for themselves”. We educate the community on responsible pet ownership and the humane treatment of animals, advocate for spaying/neutering to reduce the homeless pet population and provide the best quality care to Brevard’s abandoned animals by placing them with responsible, caring owners in a new “forever” home.

Despite their importance, Florida’s waterways are suffering from significant pollution problems such as fertilizer runoff, poorly treated municipal and industrial wastewater, and failing septic tanks. Combined with the impacts from a rapidly growing population we have a potential recipe for disaster.

This event is being hosted by the Florida Institute of Technology Indian River Lagoon Research Institute. This documentary video,Troubled Waters, was funded by St. Johns Riverkeeper and produced by Ray Hays and PRC Digital Media.
