Brewing Up Solutions: Seminole County

July 16 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Brewing Up Solutions Seminole County: July 16, 2024 from 5-7 p.m. at Deviant Wolfe Brewing (121 W 1st St, Sanford, FL)

St. Johns Riverkeeper (SJRK) is expanding its Brewing Up Solutions brewery series this year to be watershed-wide. We’re Brewing Up Solutions For the River with people who love the St. Johns from the headwaters to the mouth of the river. We began in the headwaters of the St. Johns River in Indian River County, and will travel downstream stopping along the way until we reach the Atlantic Ocean in Mayport, Duval County. Join us for monthly roundtable discussions that highlight various parts of our vibrant river, adjacent watersheds, and key figures along our journey.

Future locations for this series will include Palatka, St. Augustine, Jacksonville, and Mayport.

Topic: Inciting Action Against Climate Change
