“It was amazing to see so many people involved in our community and contributing to the research and conservation of our IRL ecosystem”

“I thought ShORE was really fun and very interesting. It was so cool to learn about what’s happening with the Indian River Lagoon.”

“Thank you so much for inviting Deland High School to the Shore conference. My students had a lot of fun! They said they learned a lot, and they also said it was good to see the connections with what they were learning in AP Environmental Science with the research that was being done if the Indian River Lagoon. I think they enjoyed the student presentations the best. They enjoyed talking with students from local universities. It was a great day!”

“I would just like to thank you for our invitation to the SHORE Symposium this year. Our school has never attended in the past, and we are so thankful to get to be a part of it this year. None of us knew what to expect, but I will say we were pleasantly surprised. They had such a great time being able to see the education that they are receiving being implemented in real life.”

“The presentations by students were so amazing and I loved the hands on tables for the students to engage in. I also got to see my first sea turtle in the wild since I’ve moved here to Florida!!! He/she swam up to the surface in the bay as I was hanging outside during lunch. It was so neat.”
