Transforming Landscapes for a Sustainable Future Conference

Join the Pelican Island Audubon Society (PIAS) for their Transforming Landscapes for a Sustainable Future Conference – January 21, 2023

This conference will be about encouraging the community to plant native plants and transforming landscapes to reduce water usage to save the fragile lagoon and ponds and bring a vision and understanding of proposed environmental annexation requests.

The conference will be held at the Emerson Center, 1590 27th Ave, Vero Beach. There will be outside native plant vendors. Admission is $25 if purchased before January 17th. After that it is $35. Virtual attendance via Zoom is available. Attendees will have a box lunch.

This is an opportunity to learn how to landscape that is sustainable, cost-effective, and enhances quality of life for all. The rate of development in the Indian River Lagoon region is tremendous. Join PIAS and be part of the solution NOW for a healthier environment by transforming our residential and commercial landscapes.
