Free Our Seas and Beyond recently hosted an Environmental Art Festival at the Carpenter House. A group of artists provided exhibits and while non-profit organizations were on site promoting the importance of caring for ocean life.
These are members of Conserving Our Reefs at Artificial Levels. It is a club at South Broward High School that is working to restore coral reefs off the coast of South Florida. Their goal is to build an artificial reef off the South Florida Coast.
Manon Wiese co-chaired the Festival and is very concerned about the state of the oceans. She’s leading an effort to get rid of single-use plastic items. Liz Forde, a member of Free Our Seas and Beyond stressed it is important to bring awareness of the problem of plastic debris in the ocean and the beaches.
There was a large beach cleanup event early during the event. Those who came could also see Captain, a rescued sea turtle that lives in pool at the Carpenter House.
