Be Floridian Now

Volusia County calls all residents to BE FLORIDIAN NOW and learn how to Fertilize like a Floridian & follow Florida Friendly yard care practices and landscaping ideas at the Port Orange Family YMCA Healthy Living Center on Monday, July 23 at 12:30 pm.

 
The magnificent places we love – Blue spring, Lake Monroe, DeLeon Springs, St. Johns River, Halifax River, Indian River Lagoon, even the ocean– are being spoiled by excess nutrients – the same nutrients we spread on our lawns as fertilizer. Nitrogen in our waterbodies can cause algae blooms and fish kills, affect wildlife habitats and seep into our drinking water.
 
We will discuss the special conditions we have as Floridians that guide how we can SAVE this precious resource for ourselves & for the future!
 
Join your community to be part of the solution to PROTECT our waterways, and save the place where we fish, boat & swim!
 
RSVP for this event: Contact our Community Health Outreach Director, Mica Lill at mlill@vfymca.org, or call 386-425-5210
