The Zen of Green

Blog written by Gayla Schaefer
All surfers know the importance of taking care of the environment - especially the ocean. Join us in The Zen of Green Blog as we explore some of the unique natural features of the Space Coast and share some environmental concerns to watch. From beach cleanup dates to special notes from local environmental groups, we hope to provide a resource for those who know the Zen of Green.

Why eels are important

Almost a decade ago (eek), I met with a really cool guy named Mike Knight to plan the first ever "Party for the Planet" at Brevard Zoo. Mike became chair of the event as I recall, and was instrumental in coming up with great ideas for the environmental showcase event celebrating Earth Day and the Space Coast.

Mike is program director for the Environmentally Endangered Lands (EEL) Program, a project dedicated to conservation through land acquisition and management managed by Brevard County's Parks & Recreation Department. The EEL Program protects Brevard County's unique natural habitats, while managing them for their rare, threatened, endangered, or endemic plants and animals.

A very cool job for a very cool guy - who, as I recall, also made and played a mean flute!

The first aim of EELS is to conserve the natural resources of Brevard County by acquisition of environmentally sensitive lands and management of the natural resources. They also provide environmental education and passive recreation opportunities, like birding and hiking, at the sanctuaries.
