In September 2019, TBRPC celebrated the 50th Anniversary of the founding of Boca Ciega Bay Aquatic Preserve.

Since that event, a committee of dedicated citizens worked to establish a Citizen Support Organization, Friends of Tampa Bay Aquatic Preserves, Inc.

The Tampa Bay Aquatic Preserves are a treasured asset throughout the region. Friends of Tampa Bay Aquatic Preserves, Inc. will build awareness for this natural resource and support the daily management efforts invested toward the health of the aquatic preserves

Friends of the Tampa Bay Aquatic Preserves will host an outdoor (socially-distanced) CSO signing ceremony on Tuesday, December 1, 2020 - 10 a.m. at Boca Ciega Bay Millennium Park

Attendees will wear masks. The event will be outdoors and as brief as possible.

Organizers hope for beautiful weather and anticipate taking photos to help share awareness.

Join signatories and environmental advocates Roger Wilson (featured in the video below) and Rose Poynor along with Alex Reed, Director, Office of Resilience and Coastal Protection, in this celebration of the Tampa Bay Aquatic Preserves. Your participation is invited.
