4-H, Manatee Center Present Lagoon Lecture Aug. 22

Learn more about how you can help the Indian River Lagoon at the Manatee Center's Lunch and Learn Friday, Aug. 22 at noon.
A healthy Indian River Lagoon and St. Lucie estuary are vital to the future of our community and the 4,000 plus species of plants and animals that call them home. The St. Lucie County 4H understands education is the basis for good stewardship. The next generation must be informed and empowered if they are to provide and carry out essential environmental solutions. 

The Lagoon & You program taught in the public schools of St. Lucie County, introduces local students of four grade levels to the Indian River Lagoon. Classroom instruction, workbooks, fun hands-on activities as well as field trips to the Lagoon are offered. Susan Munyan, a 4-H Agriculture Agent, and Debbie McManus, a 4-H Program Specialist will explain the program to area parents, at a special edition of the Manatee Center’s monthly Lunch & Learn Lecture Series on Friday, Aug. 22 starting at noon. They believe that teaching where the Indian River Lagoon is located and its value to our community helps students form a connection to this diverse ecosystem thus, ensuring a healthy environment for generations to come.

The Manatee Center is located at 480 N Indian River Drive in downtown Fort Pierce. Call 772-429-6266 for more information about this event or others visit www.manateecenter.com.
