The Lake Worth Lagoon is an estuary of multiple identities. It’s the backyard of the glittering oceanfront mansions and luxury resorts of Palm Beach; an aquatic playground for anglers, divers and tourists from all over the world; a bustling nautical highway for boaters cruising the Intracoastal Waterway; and home to the Port of Palm Beach, the fourth-busiest container port in Florida and a regional economic powerhouse. Against this backdrop, management of the Lagoon requires a thoughtful and strategic approach that recognizes the unique history and challenges facing this urban estuary, its importance to Palm Beach County’s economy and to its citizens’ quality of life.
On the heels of the 2021 Lake Worth Lagoon Management Plan update, you are invited to join us and other Lake Worth Lagoon stakeholders to learn more about the lagoon, its watershed and all of the factors that influence the health, management and restoration of this unique estuary.
