“STIRLEN” – Save the Indian River Lagoon Estuary Now
As the Founding Board Member of “STIRLEN” – Save the Indian River Lagoon Estuary Now – Tim is highly involved in recovering and restoring the Indian River Lagoon. The Lagoon is a highly diverse, unique estuary that spans approximately 40% of Florida’s east coast. The Indian River Lagoon plays a critical role for migratory and indigenous wildlife, protects against coastal erosion and provides a safe habitat for a wide variety of marine animals and plants. By preserving and protecting the Lagoon, there will be a significant decline in manatee, dolphin and seabird deaths, as well as a continued economic driver for Indian River County.
