About Marine Resources Council

The Marine Resources Council was created In 1983 by a group of Florida Tech professors to determine what could be done to reverse the negative impacts that were happening to the Indian River Lagoon through citizen science and engagement. They decided to create a 501 c (3) organization devoted entirely to protecting and restoring the Indian River Lagoon through sound science. This organization became the Marine Resources Council (MRC).

Over the years, MRC has evolved into a multi-faceted organization, adding many more programs and initiatives. MRC purchased the first conservation buffer lands along the lagoon to protect wetlands, and we still manage those lands today. We grow and plant native shoreline and wetland plants, working with community groups of all ages. MRC volunteers are measuring muck to inform dredging priorities, collecting groundwater samples to guide wastewater retrofits, and capturing aerial imagery to test cutting-edge measurement sensors. We inform and advocate, working at all levels to engage the community in behaviors that will have a positive impact on the lagoon.

MRC is governed by a diverse Board of Directors voted on annually, and advised by a group of dedicated scientists. MRC operates and manages the Ted Moorhead Lagoon House, which offers interactive indoor and outdoor educational exhibits for kids and adults of all ages and regular educational workshops. MRC moved into the Lagoon House in 2004 after Ted Moorhead spearheaded a proposal to the City of Palm Bay to construct an education center on the side of the Lagoon.

If you're uncertain about your event, please feel free to contact your local publisher to inquire about his or her policies prior to posting.

Remember too that we are a family friendly organization and reserve the right to reject any events that we deem inappropriate for our calendar or online media tools.
