About the Board

The Melbourne Beach Commission in 1992 created the Environmental Advisory Board (EAB).

The EAB advises the town manager and the town commission on environmental matters such as ordinances, resolutions, town’s comprehensive plan, stormwater retention/detention and protection of environmentally sensitive properties.

The EAB undertakes projects and programs that enhance the town environment. The EAB coordinates with area schools to educate students concerning the need to preserve and protect the environment.

Certified Wildlife Habitat Community

Certified Wildlife HabitatIn 2010, through the efforts of the Environmental Advisory Board, the Town of Melbourne Beach was the first community in Brevard County to become certified as a Community Wildlife Habitat by the National Wildlife Federation (NWF).

NWF Community Wildlife Habitats provide habitat for wildlife throughout the community—where people live, work, learn, play and worship.  Communities do this by certifying individual backyards, school grounds and public areas like parks, community gardens, places of worship and businesses, as NWF Certified Wildlife Habitats®.  Each individual certified site within the community provides the four basic elements that all wildlife need: food, water, cover and places to raise young.  These habitats help to create new corridors for wildlife to thrive.

NWF communities also do outreach to educate residents about sustainable gardening practices such as reducing or eliminating chemical fertilizers and pesticides, conserving water, planting native plants and trees, composting and more.  The community hosts workshops about gardening for wildlife and holds community events such as stream clean-ups and invasive species removal to make the community healthier for people and wildlife alike.  Local citizens become knowledgeable advocates for wildlife and sustainability.
