The Foundation Of The Foundation
The Environmental Research & Education Foundation (EREF) was created on the belief that science is the basis for action – and it continues to follow that belief. In this era of emotionalism, false choices and errant conventional wisdoms, EREF is committed to following the lead of science, driven by rigorous state-of-the-art research. This mentality is the only legitimate pathway to real environmental collaboration and effective policy development.
Believing in science means accepting the facts as they are — whether you like them or not! This is exactly what the Green Industries have been doing for decades, to the benefit of Florida’s environment and its citizens. The development and widespread implementation of high-level Green Industry and Agricultural Best Management Practices (BMP’s) has meant accepting change in the name of science, and in the name of simply doing the right thing — and it has changed the face of Florida for the better, forever.
