Florida is home to some of the most unique and biodiverse water bodies in North America. This does not go without its challenges. From issues in water quality to water quantity, the St. Johns RIVERKEEPERS are working to combat the water crisis we are facing in Central Florida and beyond. Hear from Gabbie Milch as she discusses the Rulemaking Process in the world of water conservation, covering pollutant monitoring, water supply planning, and the Free the Ocklawaha Campaign. Join IDEAS Hive in learning and brainstorming solutions on water issues in our community!

Special Note: Learning, engaging, and finding solutions. The monthly IDEAS Hive meetings allow experts from several different topics to educate you on environmental issues before inviting you to produce your own local solutions.
