Event Date(s)

Florida’s waterways are being spoiled by fertilizer runoff that causes algae blooms and fish kills, affecting recreational opportunities and destroying natural habitats needed by wildlife.

Learn how you can help protect our water resources during a Be Floridian Now program at 2 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 10, at the Daytona Beach Regional Library, 105 E. Magnolia Ave., Daytona Beach.

Mary Rockefeller of Volusia County’s Environmental Management Division will share information about the county’s fertilizer ordinance, the dynamics of stormwater runoff, and the effects of nitrogen and phosphorus on our groundwater and aquatic ecosystems.

Reservations are not required for the free program. For more information, call the library at 386-257-6036, option 4.

The library is open from 1 to 5 p.m. Sunday, 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday through Thursday, and 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Friday and Saturday.
