The Environmentally Endangered Lands Program’s Selection and Management Committee will meet from 1 to 2:45 p.m. Thursday at the EEL Program Office at 91 East Drive in Melbourne.

The purpose of the meeting is to review lands under consideration for public acquisition and management by the Brevard County Environmentally Endangered Lands Program.

The Environmentally Endangered Lands (EEL) Program was established in 1990 to protect the natural habitats of Brevard County by acquiring environmentally sensitive lands for conservation, passive recreation and environmental education.

The EEL Program forms partnerships with federal, state and local agencies that are committed to the protection of natural resources and our long-term quality of life.

EEL sanctuaries are managed to preserve native habitats and the plants and animals that live there.

Questions regarding this meeting should be directed to Laura Clark at 321-255-4466 or by sending an email to Laura.Clark@brevardparks.com.
