On September 8 at 7:00 p.m. Michael McGrath, Organizing Representative of The Sierra Club’s Red Tide-Wildlands Campaign will join us via Zoom for a timely discussion on Red Tide, Harmful Algae Blooms and Florida’s Water Quality Crisis.
Dead fish are washing up on our beaches and red tide is dominating headlines once again. To better understand Florida’s water crisis, we will dive into details surrounding the current red tide bloom along with other harmful algae blooms (HABs) and the impacts HABs have on our communities, waterways, and ecosystems.
During this Clean Water Conversation, we will break down the basics of red tide, nutrient pollution and other exacerbating factors that allow the damaging blooms to thrive for extended periods of time in both marine and freshwater systems.
We will also be breaking down the State’s insidious greenwash and their failure to meet their own established targets for reducing pollution to impaired water bodies and crack down on polluters at the expense of the public.
