Know Your GREEN | Evening Talk – Jacksonville
May 16, 2019 @ 6:00 pm
SJRK Jacksonville Office | Jacksonville University, 2800 University Blvd., Jacksonville, FL 32211 (Marine Science Research Institute Bldg.)
We’re already getting several reports of algal blooms across the Lower Basin of the St. Johns River from Palatka to Jacksonville. Read WJCT’s recent news story covering the issue.
Now’s the time to take action and help us raise awareness to get the GREEN out! Join St. Johns Riverkeeper staff to learn what causes these blue-green algal blooms and why they’re harmful to you and our River. We’ll also teach you ways to help us reduce algal blooms by living a more River Friendly lifestyle.
You’ll also learn …
– What happened on nutrient pollution bills in the 2019 Legislative Session.
– How to report algal blooms when you see them.
– Upcoming algal bloom outreach events, summer volunteer opportunities, and more!
Help us get the GREEN out of our River – don’t miss this informative talk! Light snacks and drinks provided.
