MRC Virtual Brown Bag – Indian River Legacy

June 2 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Indian River Legacy with Ms. Laurilee Thompson

Brown Bag Lunch Seminar
Zoom Webinar
Tuesday, June 2nd, 2020
12 p.m. to 1 p.m.
Join us for our Virtual Brown Bag Seminar, “Indian River Legacy” with Ms. Laurilee Thompson! In the 1950s, the Indian River Lagoon was crystal clear and its bounty seemed limitless. Growth and development took its toll and now our nation’s most biologically diverse estuary can no longer claim that distinction. Journey through the decades as Laurilee tells the story of her life on the Indian River, from the days of gin-clear waters, through its downfall and then to hope as a new generation works to bring our most precious natural resource back to its former splendor and productivity. Sign up today to hear this amazing personal account of the Indian River Lagoon!
The seminar will end with a live QA session, but we also recommend that participants to please email any questions you might have about the IRL’s history to the MRC’s Nicole Broquet at by June 1st.
