Our next restoration party!

We have a work party tomorrow out at Saltwater Park. We will be out there from 10 AM - 2 PM removing the remaining Scot's Broom in the restoration area and installing fascines that we will be creating on site with the Scot's Broom branches. Volunteers are welcome to come help during the work party. Minors will need a parent's signature. Refreshments will be provided by Richmond Beach QFC and Starbucks. Hope to see you there!

Restoration project update

Our first restoration work party at Saltwater Park was a huge success. We removed the Scot's Broom from two-thirds of our design site with the help of our amazing volunteers. Everyone was working really hard together to remove and haul away the invasive plants. An enormous THANK YOU goes out to the volunteers who came out to help as well as to Richmond Beach QFC and Starbucks for providing refreshments for the event. We are well on our way to restoring the native landscape. Stay tuned for more updates!

Come out today and join us in removing Scot's Broom above the playground. We will be providing light refreshments, tools, and gloves. Just bring yourself dressed comfortably for the occasion and a lunch! Hope to see you out there!
