TIME: 10 a.m.

Refreshments and walking tours to follow ribbon cutting.
Completion of the boardwalk finalizes this phase of the Lake Lillian wetlands restoration project that began in Summer 2015.
The wetlands restoration work,
a public-private collaborative effort between MBG Inc. and the City of Winter Park, was made possible
- A grant from the Florida Dept. of Environmental Protection
- Funding from the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission
A special thanks to Mr. David Stalowy and the CFE Corporation for the extraordinary generosity that allowed for the boardwalk completion. MBG Inc thanks the many civic leaders, environmental organizations, and volunteer groups that have supported this restoration effort.
We hope you'll join us for the ribbon
cutting. Please help us to plan for
refreshments with an RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org.
