Hike at N WMA

March 24th-8:20 am - 12:00 pm


We will hike the 7+ mile loop trail at Triple N Wildlife Management Area. No hunting is scheduled for this date. This WMA is off of US 192 about 20.2 miles west of the intersection of US 192 and I95. The pace will be easy going. There is a pit toilet at the parking lot. Bring lunch or a heavy snack. We can detour to a picnic table about 3/4 of the way through the hike. This will add a bit to the total miles, hence the "+" sign. Would like to start walking at 8:30, which explains the odd 8:20 start time.

If you use Google or let your GPS do the navigating, do not confuse the entrance of this WMA with the (indoor) Triple N Shooting Range. The shooting range is off of US 441 south of St. Cloud.

Assessing the health of the Indian River Lagoon - The IRL Report Card!

March 22nd-7 PM

Marine Resources Council (MRC) is publishing the first comprehensive evaluation of lagoon health, the State of the Indian River Lagoon Report (card). This enormous project required compiling millions of data from dozens of agencies, establishing health indicators and targets, designing easy to understand infographics, and producing print and web-based communications. 

Dr. Leesa Souto, MRC's Executive Director, will talk about the report card challenges and findings and the vision for how this tool will move our community forward to save our lagoon!

Stay Up to Date on The Indian River Lagoon Tax Money

Check the web site below to find out how and where the Lagoon tax money is being spent.  The Citizens Oversight Committee that monitors this money meets every 3rd Friday on the 3rd floor of the County Government Building in Viera.

Please share this information with your friends, neighbors and HOA's.  It took time for the Lagoon to get into the shape it's in now, and it will take time to reverse the damage.  The public needs to understand this.
