White Pelicans have returned to Charlotte Harbor

  An executive with the Mosaic Company Foundation presented a gift of $40,000 to the Charlotte Harbor Environmental Center or CHEC Wednesday.  

Environmentalists and Charlotte County Commissioners have criticized the phosphate producer for mining operations they have said pose potential harm to the area’s watershed.   CHEC Educator Eileen Tramontana said the grant money is used to educate the community about all sides of the issue and comes with no strings attached.
