Water Matters Day: March 9, 2019

Water Matters Day is Broward County's annual water conservation event where residents can learn about local and regional water resources, concerns, and solutions. Scientific technicians Danyelle Fitzgerald, Andrea Carmona Cortes, and Eileen Pokorny set up the IPRL Biological Control Agent display to show residents how USDA is investigating invasive weeds that can effect water flow and how our biological control agents can provide a solution. Live biological control agents were on display and information about invasive weeds was distributed.
