General Information

In 1995, the Loxahatchee River District founded the non-profit group, Friends of the Loxahatchee River, to provide a unique way for local citizens to learn more about the river and its ecosystems.

Friends' mission is three-fold: to encourage public involvement in river preservation efforts, to offer environmental educational opportunities and to support aquatic research efforts.

Activities Include

  • Monthly Meetings
  • Program support for the River Center
  • Funding for water quality monitoring on the Loxahatchee River
  • Monthly meetings featuring presentations on various aspects of the river - the first Friday of each month at 12:00 pm (noon) at the River Center 805 N. US Hwy 1, Jupiter (Burt Reynolds Park), where all are welcome and complimentary snacks are served.
  • Adult Environmental Education Series

Call 561-743-7123 or education@loxahatcheeriver.org for more information.
