USGBC Treasure Coast program – June 12

Join us on Thursday, June 12, for the Treasure Coast Branch program featuring the Audubon of Martin County. Debbie Clark, Director of Audubon of Martin County, will present a tour of the Stormwater Retrofit Project and the Urban Forest of the Possum Long Nature Center.

Founded in 1955, Audubon of Martin County is a certified chapter of the National Audubon Society. It has the unique distinction of being one of the few Audubon chapters in the country that own and maintain hundreds of acres of conservation land. The Audubon of Martin County offers field trips and presentations throughout the year, and organizes citizen-scientist volunteers who assist with the statewide Eagle Watch program, the Christmas Bird Count, and bird-banding identification.

In 2010, Audubon of Martin County completed a Stormwater Retrofit project which added a pond and sloughs carefully engineered to mimic the wet/dry cycles of natural wetlands. Join us at the Possum Long Nature Center to tour their 4.7-acre urban forest and engineered wetlands located right in the heart of Stuart.
