Earth Day events for 2013 were held at the Jacksonville Landing and although the weather was cold and dreary there was a great turnout. TISIRI was invited to participate in the festivities and to receive a grant sponsored by Vistakon through Earth Day Jacksonville. The grant is to support TISIRI's children's book project currently in the works. The book follows the story of a ship that becomes an artificial reef and we at TISIRI are very excited about it. It allows us to better reach out to children about the significance of marine habitats while telling a truly engaging and visual story. Keep an eye for the book in the fall.
