You Won't Want to Miss this

Special Presentation on

Thursday May, 30th at 11AM

THE DISCHARGES FROM LAKE OKEECHOBEE

BEGIN YET AGAIN!

 

Your support and attendance is needed now more than ever as the alien waters from the lake infiltrate our beloved St. Lucie. Is this just the beginning? Will they increase the amount of water dumping into the river and when? Is there an alternative? These questions and more will be answered by our own Kevin Henderson and Mark Perry.

 

Representatives of the South Florida Water Management District will give an update on the status of the C-44 project and what we can do to help.

 

Rivers Coalition public meetings are held at the city of Stuart commission chambers, 121 SW Flagler Ave. Plenty of parking. Come show your support!

Let's Restore the Florida Everglades! 

 

Stop Wasteful, Harmful Discharges to Sea. Send Excess Lake Okeechobee Water South instead of destroying our Coastal Estuaries.
