Join MRC and Steve Beeman at our Nov. 5 Brown Bag Lunch and discover how Steve’s patented floating plant mats, or “Beemats,” are used for wetlands treatment.
Steve Beeman grew up in South Texas before pursuing his bachelors and masters degrees at the University of Hawaii, where he studied hammerhead sharks. Following graduation, he moved to Florida to work as a biologist for DEP, and started his own company, Ecoshores, Inc., in 1978.
Ecoshores, Inc. focused on establishing native shorelines, wetlands, and habitats for clients. Ecoshores, Inc. morphed into Beeman’s Nursery in 2000 and then Beemats, LLC in 2008. Beemats, LLC designs and installs floating treatment wetlands for nutrient pollution remediation. These patented designs consist of various shapes and types of plants, all with the goal of removing harmful nutrients like nitrogen and phosphorous.
This Brevard County event is free and open to the public; all attendees must register or RSVP. If interested and able, we ask participants to donate toward our guest speaker series. The MRC Lunch & Learn series is a long-standing and cherished community social that is supported by volunteers and your charitable giving. Attendees are encouraged and welcome to bring and enjoy their lunch during the seminar! For more information on the Marine Resources Council, please visit www.SaveTheIRl.org.
