River Kidz in Our Schools

invited to Jensen Beach Elementary School to present to all the 3rd grade classes.  The students were all very enthusiastic about wanting to save our lagoon! Each child received a workbook, a bracelet and a membership card. 
River Kidz Noted in a Speech by Senator Joe Negron
In his senate presidency designation speech, Senator Joe Negron referred to the River Kidz' notable presence regarding the Lake Okeechobee releases in 2013.
