Tampa Bay Watch, in partnership with The Tampa Bay Estuary Program, Pinellas County and the Southwest Florida Water Management District is recruiting volunteers to plant native coastal upland plants including seashore paspalum and sand cordgrass to restore Feather Sound.

Date: Thursday, June 20, 9AM - 12PM
Location: The meeting location is Feather Sound Drive south of the Earl R. Maize Recreation Area, 2051 Feather Sound Drive, Clearwater, FL 33762.

Goal of Project:
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 such as Brazilian pepper 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.
