LagoonFest is an all-day music charity event to generate awareness and funds to produce the first State of the Indian River Lagoon Report Card. The Report Card will update the community on the current health of the lagoon and the corrective action necessary to reverse the negative impact we have on the estuary. The report card is projected to be distributed throughout the 5 counties of the lagoon by 2017.
