Pelican Island Audubon Society

An opportunity to learn how to landscape in a way that is sustainable, cost-effective and helps enhance our quality of life. The goal of the conference is to showcase the need to reverse course on how communities, developments and individual private homes develop their outdoor landscapes. While the decline of the Indian River Lagoon has been attributed mainly to Lake Okeechobee discharges and septic-system pollutants, use of non-native plantings that require fertilizing and pesticides have also contributed. Smart landscaping can play a vital role in protecting water quality and providing habitats for plants and animals.
