“Why All of Us Should Love Seagrass” will the timely topic of the Marine Discovery Center’s September public lecture, set for Thursday, Sept. 16, at 7 p.m. Eastern.
Lori J. Morris, an environmental scientist for St. Johns River Water Management District’s (SJRWMD) Division of Water and Land Resources/ Bureau of Water Resources, will be the guest presenter at the free webinar.
Long involved with the effort to regrow seagrass in the lagoon, Morris will cover the importance of seagrasses and explain what happened to the IRL seagrasses. She will discuss why the effort to regrow seagrass is struggling and what scientists and local governments are doing to help with the recovery. She will also address what the public can do to help.
