Palm Beach County’s Programs

Click on the links if this would be good for your SIG.
Palm Beach County's Office of Community Revitalization (OCR) is proud to once again offer the Resident Education to Action Program (REAP), a five-week, hands-on educational program providing community revitalization and civic leadership development training. This program is intended to help residents who are interested in improving their neighborhoods.
· Call to County Artists for Exhibit at PBIA
Artists, do you want your work to receive broad exposure and possibly sell? If so, enter your artwork for exhibition at one of the county's most visited locations.
· WUD to Host Free Photo Workshops at Wakodahatchee
The Palm Beach County Water Utilities Department (WUD) is hosting a series of five free photography workshops to help you learn about our native wildlife and how to get the best nature photographs. Nationally-recognized nature photographers have volunteered to give lectures and critiques at the Wakodahatchee boardwalk.
