Tampa Bay Estuary Program, Tampa Bay Watch, Pinellas County and the Southwest Florida Water Management District are recruiting volunteers to plant native coastal upland plants such as sea grapes, buttonwood and Florida privet to restore Feather Sound from 9 am to noon on Saturday, March 9.
The meeting location is Feather Sound Drive south of the Feather Sound Country Club, 2201 Feather Sound Dr. Clearwater, FL 33762. A habitat restoration plan aims to restore more than 30 acres of marsh and mangrove wetlands in the area along Feather Sound Drive, including around the borrow pit and near Ulmerton Road. Invasive, exotic vegetation has been removed, now native coastal upland plants will be planted that will provide habitat for wildlife and help clean runoff before it enters the bay. Registration is required. Click here to sign up.
