Native Replacements for Ficus Hedges

Environmental - Water Sampling Survey

Dear Members, Our Lake Worth Waterkeeper and Florida Atlantic University’s Water Analysis Laboratory are undertaking a water testing program to determine the health of the marine environment in the Intracoastal Waterway along Palm Beach. This survey will help the laboratory understand the chemicals that are being used on Palm Beach landscapes. The data from the study will help us gain a better understanding of how these chemicals affect the lagoon, allowing us to make more informed decisions to build a healthier community. We hope you will take a few minutes to fill out the short 10-question survey that can be accessed by clicking on the link to the right. Many thanks, Linda Beaty, Co-Chairman Environmental Committee
