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.

2015 Night on the Loxahatchee: River Rhapsody
In the waning light of day on July 10, 1860, the Jupiter Inlet Lighthouse flashed its guiding beacon out across the seas for the first time. The completion of the lighthouse not only signaled a new era of safe navigation, but also served as a central point for a wide variety of communication technologies that helped turn the region from a sparsely populated “end of the line” settlement into a vibrant community living off the bounty of resources along the Loxahatchee River and Atlantic coast. It is only fitting then that this period of growth during the late 19th Century will be showcased at this year’s highly anticipated Night on the Loxahatchee fundraiser to benefit the River Center.
