Florida’s Newest Clean Marina!

June 11th, 2011 by theAddison

Here at the Addison we do our part in being kind to the environment.  We have been a Florida Green Lodging property for the last two years and we recently retrofitted the historic building with attic and crawlspace insulation to conserve energy and increase our guest’s comfort.  Our local marina is doing their part for the environment as well.

Fernandina Harbor Marina completed the last inspection by the Florida Department of Environmental Protection Clean Marina program and the marina is now Florida’s newest Clean Marina. The Florida Clean Marina Program is a voluntary designation program with a proactive approach to environmental stewardship. To become designated as a Clean Marina, facilities must implement a set of environmental measures designed to protect Florida’s waterways.  These measures address critical environmental issues such as sensitive habitat, waste management, stormwater control, spill prevention and emergency preparedness. To celebrate this Clean Marina designation, Fernandina Harbor received their Clean Marina Flag at a ceremony held in conjunction with National Marina Day today.

I have saved a gallery of my favorite marina photos on our Facebook page.  Please feel free to add to the gallery!
