When you do what you love, you love what you do!
We are a young but fast growing non-profit organization with a passion for conservation. Like the budding mangrove of our logo we are spreading out and taking action to preserve our beloved Florida shoreline.
To create and expand sustainable living shorelines through educational outreach and land conservancy programs that utilize community-engaged design for the benefit of the Indian River Lagoon and for the greater public health and recreation of the surrounding communities.
Here at RC, we recognize that education is an important part of conservation. What we want to achieve is not only physical, but a change in mindset. We hope for future generations to understand that a healthy community relies on harmony between its citizens and the nature around them. Through the restoration and enhancement of lands and waterways we can help create a more prosperous and healthy society. Volunteers and program participants can learn in the field, getting their hands dirty in fun coastal activities and continue their knowledge through research opportunities, like attending our Academy! Everyone will have the ability to internalize the core value of being good stewards of the environment, and hopefully can become ambassadors to inspire the people around them. As their knowledge and participation increases, there will be more people working toward healthy habitats, and benefiting our entire community.
Our goal is for the beauty around us to be conserved and used to educate future generations. Through Riverside Conservancy, we can help create community leaders, restore shorelines that bring back natural wildlife such as oysters, and create a more resilient community.
We can be the future that leads to a sustainable balance with nature!
