The 10th Annual Viera Wetlands Nature Festival is a 2-day event at the Ritch Grissom Memorial Wetlands in Viera, Florida, sponsored by The Viera Company and the Viera Community Institute. The event is a fundraiser, with eco-friendly and educational vendors, exhibits, classes and tours, to learn and explore the beautiful setting and highly visited site here in Viera. Scheduled tours and classes are available during the 2-day event with professionals in photography, environmental education, staff from Brevard County's Natural Resources Management Department and Viera Wetlands Rangers. Tours and classes are offered with donations to support the maintenance of the site.
The Viera Wetlands are neither a park, nor a preserve: they are a constructed treatment system designed specifically to polish effluent from the adjacent wastewater reclamation facility. Because of this, public sector funding of the wetlands exists only to their designed wastewater treatment function.
The Festival & Vendor area (including exhibits, hands on activities, eco-friendly items and food) will be open:
Saturday, April 13th from 10 a.m. - 4 p.m.
Sunday, April 14th from 10 a.m. - 2 p.m.
The Viera Wetlands rely on donations to maintain the site's diverse wildlife habitat, and to allow continued public access. Your donations will be used to support the Viera Wetlands. Thank you in advance for your participation in the event and your contribution that is "supporting nature in our community."
