Congratulations to Firm Municipal Client, Lauderdale-By the-Sea for Winning the Environmental Stewardship Award.
The Environmental Stewardship Award focuses on city programs that promote conservation, improve and protect environmental conditions, and/or provide environmental education and outreach programs within a city. The Town of Lauderdale-By-The-Sea’s coastal environmental protection program has two main components: planting sea oats to build up beach-protecting sand dunes, and transplanting staghorn corals to local reefs to create additional underwater habitats. Among other things, this has mitigated beach erosion and improved coastal resiliency to help maintain vital sea turtle habitat.
Member Susan Trevarthen serves as Town Attorney for the Town of Lauderdale-By-the-Sea.
