Educating with Extension Newsletters

Each month, the Extension Service publishes a newsletter about its exciting programs and events both past and upcoming. See what we are doing and how you can become involved. 

For our March 2020 newsletter, we featured an article written by our UF-IFAS Sea Grant Agent, Shelly Krueger, discussing how to improve our water quality.016571

"We all know water is the most important ingredient for life, and second only to the air we need to breathe! It is also important for marine life and wildlife, especially in our Florida Keys economy that is dominated by the natural environment for our jobs and resources. Usually when we refer to water quality, we are talking about having water that is safe for swimming, fishing, and other types of recreation. Sometimes when we talk about water quality we are referring to having water that is safe to drink. Whether for swimming or drinking, fishing or kayaking, we can all make choices that can improve the water quality in our local  watershed and beyond."
