Education and Outreach at Mosquito Lagoon Aquatic Preserve Quick Topics

Education and outreach are essential management tools used to increase public awareness and promote informed stewardship by local communities. Education programs include on and off-site education and training activities and volunteer coordination and outreach.

Staff annually conducts various educational and outreach events, including Goby Fest held in spring at St. Sebastian River Preserve State Park and several half-day summer camps held at the Environmental Field Station in Cocoa Beach. These events feature information about each of the Mosquito Lagoon Aquatic Preserve (MLAP) management activities and serve to educate the public about the uniqueness of the aquatic preserves found right in their own backyards.

The staff has a partnership with the Marine Discovery Center, a non-profit educational group, to educate the local community on the protection and conservation of the natural resources found within MLAP and provide hands-on educational opportunities.
