SEAGRASS THEN & NOW – A LOOK BACK AT 20 YEARS OF SEAGRASS MONITORING AND MAPPING IN THE LOXAHATCHEE RIVER ESTUARY
Since 2003 the Loxahatchee River District has been monitoring and mapping seagrass in the Loxahatchee River Estuary. Seagrass monitoring was conducted at least bimonthly at select seagrass beds within the estuary and continues to this day for over 20 years of uninterrupted seagrass data. In addition to the small-scale bimonthly monitoring, the Loxahatchee River District has also conducted large-scale, whole estuary mapping assessment of seagrass in 2007, 2010, 2018, and 2022. This presentation will take a look back at some of the changes in seagrass abundance, composition, and distribution that 20+ years of monitoring and mapping efforts have provided as well as provide an overview of the current seagrass community in the Loxahatchee River Estuary. The presentation will also briefly showcase the results of recent mapping of seagrass around the Sawfish and Fullerton Islands recreation area, a region previously unmapped by the district.

Registration is required to attend.

This event is not recommended for children under the age of 14.
