Important! We need your help

We need your help!

The jetty off Lido beach, where we take youth out snorkeling will be covered over with 80 feet of sand for a renourishment project. The sand they will be taking is from a sea grass bed which is vital for manatees and sea turtles. Please write in to the Florida Department of Environmental Protection before the 15th to let them know how you feel about the jetty. This is the perfect snorkeling spot for youth because there are lifeguards on duty and it is located at the public swim beach. Let them know what a valuable resource this is to the public and marine life.  The environmental impacts and damage to this valuable community resource have not been sufficiently studied.
