I want to welcome everyone back for the 2016-2017 season. We have an event-filled fall and winter ahead of us. Our programs and field trips are already planned thanks to Ellen and Adella. Details are in the newsletter and on this web site.
We are still awaiting the decision on the petition that was filed in court against the City of Port St. Lucie and the SFWMD. Our legal bills have mounted and we hope to have several fund-raising events this fall and winter. This will include two Adams Ranch Breakfast opportunities, so watch for more information!
The season is starting with the Indian River Lagoon Science Fest on Oct. 22nd at the Veteran's Park Community Center, Fort Pierce from10 a.m.- 3 p.m. Come and see us there!

The 292-paste full-color large format (8.5x10.75 inches) book was produced at the request of his brother Bob as a birthday gift. It is edited by SLAS webmaster Mary Dodge.
