Tampa Bay Watch, in partnership with the City of St. Petersburg and Biltmore Construction, is recruiting 50 volunteers to transplant various native coastal plants along the Maximo Park living shoreline project to help protect the shoreline from erosion and provide beneficial habitat. Maximo Park is located on Pinellas Point Dr S &, Sunshine Skyway Ln S, St. Petersburg, FL 33711.

This project is family friendly and open to all ages! With planting events, prepare to get dirty. Please wear clothes and closed-toe shoes that are comfortable for working outdoors and that you don’t mind getting dirty. We will provide gloves, but participants may bring their own garden gloves if preferred. Please wear sun protection (sunscreen, shade hat, sunglasses) and bring a water bottle. We will provide tools, plants, water coolers, and snacks!

Mission Statement

Tampa Bay Watch, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit stewardship program dedicated exclusively to the protection and restoration of the marine and wetland environments of the Tampa Bay estuary through scientific and educational programs.

Description

Founded in 1993, we perform a variety of habitat restoration and protection activities throughout the year utilizing thousands of volunteers to help the bay recover from its environmental threats. Individuals of all ages from families, community groups, and schools participate in native grass plantings, oyster bar construction, coastal cleanups, and wildlife protection each year demonstrating environmental stewardship in its purest form. The efforts of Tampa Bay Watch to restore and protect the bay's habitat through stewardship provide effective long-term improvements to the bay and empower our community to counteract local environmental problems. Learning how to achieve and maintain a healthy environment is a legacy that will influence our children and future generations for years to come.
