• Participate in Upcoming Our Florida Reefs Community Meetings



    Come let your voice be heard at upcoming community meetings! Some of the objectives of these meetings are: to inform the public on the Our Florida Reefs process, to present draft Recommended Management Actions (RMAs) written by Community Working Group (CWG) members, and to gather feedback from the public regarding this strategy to protect our reefs and marine resources.

    At the meetings, you will have a chance to learn about our marine resources, speak with some of the community working group members who wrote the RMAs, ask questions, and submit your opinions on specific RMAs.
