Ocean Treasures Festival-February 4th
Join our chapter at the Barrier Island Center for their Ocean Treasures Festival on Saturday, February 4th. We will be setting up our chapter tent at 9:15 a.m. and ending at 4:00 p.m. The Center is centrally located in heart of the Archie Carr Refuge in southern Melbourne Beach at 8385 South Highway A1A.
The Barrier Island Center is managed under Brevard County’s Environmentally Endangered Lands Program referendum. The referendum was established by voters in 1990 to protect and preserve the rich biological diversity of Brevard County for future generations.
At our tent, we will be spreading our mission's message of clean water and healthy beaches. Let's support the center's program to protect and preserve the many ocean treasures we have in Florida. If you are passionate about our ocean and beaches, help us at our tent during the festival. Meet others with the same passion.
