October 26: Save Our River 5k Run / 1k Walk to benefit Florida Oceanographic Society’s efforts

 

October 26, 2013 is the 1st annual Save Our River 5k Run & 1k Walk. This event will benefit The Florida Oceanographic Society in support of their ongoing efforts with education, research, restoration and advocacy concerning our fragile coastal ecosystems. Polluted freshwater discharges from Lake Okeechobee and storm water runoff continue to plague our estuaries. The organizers remind Martin County that there is no quick fix! We must keep pressure on our legislators and demand action. Please support Florida Oceanographic in this ongoing battle for clean waterways and healthy estuaries.
