Get Involved

There are two important ways that you can help support this nationally recognized scenic byway organization. The first is to get involved. The Indian River Lagoon National Scenic Byway Coalition needs volunteers to assist with a variety of tasks including membership tracking, representing the byway at community events, fostering community support, marketing, and fundraising. Volunteers with specialized skills or just a few hours to get involved are always needed and much appreciated.

The second way to help is through a financial donation. The Coalition is an all-volunteer effort. Although we have received many project-specific grants over the past 10 years, funding is needed for priority projects and the implementation of organizational goals to ensure that this regional treasure is preserved for future generations.

Individuals, groups, businesses, and corporations are invited to become Business Partners and Friends of the Byway.
