Come join us on Saturday, May 2nd from 9:00 a.m. to noon at Robinson Preserve in Manatee County. Our focus for this event will be creating oyster bags. Clean oyster shell will be put into mesh bags. The filled bags are used for erosion control and habitat creation at the Preserve.

TBEP is excited to partner with its sister program, Sarasota Bay National Estuary Program, the Manatee County Parks and Natural Resources Department and Around the Bend Nature Tours for this workday.

This 487-acre preserve has undergone an incredible transformation from disturbed farmland to coastal and wetland habitats.
We need 50 volunteers for this workday.
We will celebrate our good work with a delicious lunch and volunteers can enjoy the park for the rest of the afternoon!
If you have any problems with this online registration form, please call or Misty Cladas, (727) 893-2765.

We look forward to seeing you on Saturday, May 2nd to help make Tampa Bay a better place to live and play.
