Learn how to protect our waterways

Florida’s waterways are being spoiled by fertilizer runoff that causes algae blooms and fish kills, affecting recreational opportunities and destroying natural habitats needed by wildlife.

Learn how you can help protect our water resources during Be Floridian Now programs at:

  • 2 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 3, at the New Smyrna Beach Regional Library, 1001 S. Dixie Freeway, New Smyrna Beach
  • 2 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 18, at the Ormond Beach Regional Library, 30 S. Beach St., Ormond Beach
  • 2 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 24, at the Deltona Regional Library, 2150 Eustace Ave., Deltona

Mary Rockefeller of Volusia County’s Environmental Management Division will share information about the county’s fertilizer ordinance, the dynamics of stormwater runoff, and the effects of nitrogen and phosphorus on our groundwater and aquatic ecosystems.

Reservations are not required for the free programs. For more information, call the Ormond Beach library at 386-676-4191, option 4; or the Deltona library at 386-789-7207, option 1, then 4.
