The monthly meetings will be suspended for the summer and will begin again in September.

Board Tours Mangrove Mitigation Area

On December 29, six members of the SFAS Board toured the newly cultivated mangrove mitigation area at Port Everglades. Rob Musser, Environmental Manager at Port Everglades, led the group on the tour to view the two areas of mitigation where mangrove trees have been planted.  This is the result of an ongoing project between Port Everglades and SFAS.  

Once the mangroves are deemed "flourishing", the entire mangrove area within the fences is to be deeded to the Florida Department of Environmental Protection (FDEP).  At the point at which FDEP takes possession of the property, the stewardship of the property passes in perpetuity to SFAS.  The details of the stewardship, including financial recompense, if any, have yet to be determined. 

Members (left to right): Christine Myers, George Allman, Lee Gottlieb, David Walker, President Doug Young, Environmental Manager Port Everglades Rob Musser (Guide), and Grant  Campbell.
