Each year, the “Love Your Lagoon” gala has raised critical funding to benefit Indian River Lagoon research and outreach at the Harbor Branch Oceanographic Institute at Florida Atlantic University (HBOI).
Proceeds from this year’s event will support a Indian River Lagoon Graduate Research Fellows program. The competitive process will result in the matching of each awarded Fellow with an HBOI faculty mentor directly involved in lagoon research at HBOI, providing support for salary, tuition, travel to present research, and/or necessary materials.
Fellows will ultimately present their research at the 2019 Indian River Lagoon Symposium as well as the FAU Charles E. Schmidt College of Science Graduate Research Day.
In addition, proceeds will support the seventh annual two-day Indian River Lagoon Symposium, “Restoration of the Indian River Lagoon.” Attended by more than 600, the symposium is a multi-institutional, multi-agency forum for discussing Indian River Lagoon science and its application to management of the lagoon.
