IRLT Membership Makes a Difference

Celebrating Nature with Our Members at Toni Robinson Waterfront Trail!

IRLT Annual Membership Event The Florida sunshine wasn't the only thing shining brightly at our 2024 Member Event held on March 23rd at the beautiful Toni Robinson Waterfront Trail! We were thrilled to welcome 100+ IRLT members to explore the newly enhanced trail and celebrate our shared love for conservation.

This event wouldn't have been possible without the incredible support of our dedicated donors and sponsors. We extend a heartfelt thank you to PulteGroup DiVosta, Coastal Waterways, Einstein Bros Bagels, Gould Cooksey Fennell, PLLC, Marine Bank & Trust, Schacht Groves, and Total Golf Cart. Their generosity allows us to continue preserving this vital green space and offer educational experiences.

As members enjoyed self-guided tours along the path, they discovered some exciting new additions to the trail;

  • Informative Interpretive Signs: Strategically placed signage provided fascinating details about the local flora and fauna, transforming the hike into a learning adventure.
  • Bat Houses and Owl Barns: These structures offer much-needed safe havens for these essential nocturnal creatures, promoting a healthy ecosystem.
  • Osprey Nesting Platform: We proudly unveiled a brand-new platform, hoping to attract a resident osprey family to call Toni Robinson home!
These enhancements were made possible by a generous land trust supporter!

The event truly embodied the spirit of our mission at Indian River Land Trust! Seeing so many passionate individuals come together to celebrate the beauty of nature reaffirms our mission to protect, improve, provide access to, and promote the preservation of waterways, open spaces, and green places in Indian River County for the benefit of all today and tomorrow.
