Join us for our August Lunch & Learn Webinar, “Restoring Rain’s Natural Path,” with Joanie Regan, Stormwater Manager for the City of Cocoa Beach, who will introduce the idea and methodology behind restoring rain’s natural path.

Stormwater infrastructure, Cocoa BeachThe implementation of Low Impact Development (LID) is a fundamental aspect of protecting and restoring the Indian River Lagoon. Log on to hear how LID is implemented, can reduce stormwater runoff, and beautify our communities.

The seminar will end with a live Q&A session, but we also recommend that participants email any questions that relate to this topic to the MRC’s Nicole Broquet at nicole@mrcirl.org by July 31.

This is a free virtual event, but you must register to receive the zoom link and login information. If you are unable to register, we will be live streaming it through the MRC’s Facebook page and will be recording the presentation for future viewing!
