Talk biodiesel with us at Goby Fest 2008 - April 5, Sebastian FL

Brevard Biodiesel will be taking part in the 4th annual "Goby Fest" presented by the non-profit Coastal Preserves Alliance.
The event takes place at the St. Sebastian River Preserve State Park on Saturday April 5th 2008 from 10am til 4pm. This nature festival raises funds to support local state parks and aquatic preserves. Highlights include various kayak/boat/wagon/walking tours, blacksmith demonstrations and a herpetological display. Food and craft vendors will be present along with other exhibitors. Admission is free with a nominal charge for tours.

This 22,000+ acre preserve is the largest upland public property in the Indian River/South Brevard counties region. There are many opportunities for wildlife viewing in the area including chances to spot nesting bald eagles, kestrels, shrikes, and many other feathered visitors - earning their spot on the Florida Birding Trail.

We'll be there to share information about biodiesel - have fun!
