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