Everglades Day 2010 (Click to Enlarge)

This is one of our favorite events to Expo for Florida.

Some of the waters that affect our precious Florida Coral Reefs travel threw the Everglades and discharge into Florida Bay. The consequence can be catastrophic for marine life if not properly managed. (Enough with the bad news!!.. Everyone here wants to protect Florida and loves the Florida Lifestyle.)

ASE Everglades Day is more of a celebration of activism and conservation and it’s your opportunity to Celebrate with Us. So join us won’t you?

October 23rd Legacy Place in Palm Beach Gardens 

Wyland Mobile Learning Center at ICRS

The Wyland Mobile Learning Center is visiting Palm Beach Gardens, plan to join us there or visit the Wyland MLC at these locations:

The Mobile Center is part of the Wyland Foundation and Wyland’s Clean Water Challenge, and educates the public in a fun, entertaining way with a 40-person movie theater, a running river, video microscopes, and a watershed exhibit with actual rainfall. As children enter the Wyland Mobile Learning Center, they are recruited to become “Clean Water Challenge Agents,” and begin their training and are put to task.  They are asked to solve mysterious disturbances in the health of the nation’s water habitats, with exhibits focusing on lake regions, river management estuaries and ocean runoff.  The participate in hands-on activities like bringing rain down over a polluted city to see the impact it has on a watershed, diverting a flowing river to learn about water management, and using a computer model to see changes in a lake region over 200 years.” (www.wylandfoundation.org).

Finally, enjoy Paula Caro’s video regarding the BP Oil Event, great music, and unbelievable passion for the Ocean. Thanks Paula, great videography including Species of Concern.

Hope too see you..
