When people think of Florida, they often envision sandy beaches and palm trees swaying in the breeze. However, hidden within Central Florida’s diverse landscape lies a thriving mountain biking scene waiting to be discovered.
Sea Turtle Nesting Season will soon be upon us, and that means all properties by the beach need to be reviewed for compliance with county and lighting ordinances. The Brevard coast reports the highest number of loggerhead and green sea turtle nesting in the United States, so it’s critical to the sea turtle’s environment that they are not exposed to artificial light.
