In our fourth episode, we’re talking about the importance of seagrass. Seagrasses are at the crux of many issues facing the Indian River Lagoon. But why are these underwater grasses so important? How do they impact water quality and ecology? And what is being done to nurse their damaged populations back to health? Lori Morris and Lauren Hall from St. Johns Water Management District stop by to discuss the role seagrasses play in the lagoon’s future. 

To learn more about seagrass restoration initiatives, visit the St. John’s River Water Management District website today.
