- ABOUT US
- Rights of Springs
You are invited to an evening with Preserve Brevard, as Sister Pat Siemen explores the development of the Rights of Nature movement, a legal approach that recognizes the inherent rights of natural ecosystems to exist and flourish. From Bolivia to Pittsburgh, from Santa Monica to New Zealand, communities are claiming ecosystem protection as an essential part of creating sustainable communities. Protecting Florida’s waters is a part of this larger international movement whose time has come.
This event is free and open to the public. Walk-ins will be accepted at the door, but space is limited. Please pre-register at PreserveBrevard.eventbrite.com.
Directions to the Brevard Zoo Nyami Nyami River Lodge, 8225 N. Wickham Road, Melbourne, FL 32940, are available here.
Please join us for a day of exploration and discovery on Saturday, January 25, 2014, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Working with clay, participants will learn the inherent ability of water to define and organize itself, and develop a new understanding of the kinetic, aesthetic, and spiritual properties of water.
This hands-on workshop will be held at the UCF Biology Field Research Center in Orlando, Florida. Registration is $15 for the general public and $10 for students. Please register by e-mailing CEJfirstname.lastname@example.org or calling (321) 206-5788.
Light snacks and drinks will be provided throughout the day.
