SBEP and King Middle School Team Up to Clean Cortez FISH Preserve
SBEP is supporting the ongoing restoration at FISH Preserve. The first phase of the large-scale project was completed in the summer and involved the removal of exotic vegetation, creation of a tidal wetland, and mangrove restoration. Two bridges were also constructed to connect hiking trails. Future plans involve creation of kayak trails and converting two stormwater retention ponds into more natural wetland features.
The Sarasota Bay Guardians is a family-friendly volunteer program that SBEP manages in partnership with Around the Bend Nature Tours. The program was established to attract volunteers interested in helping restore Sarasota Bay’s habitat. The program is a fun way to volunteer while learning more about the Bay. New volunteers receive a t-shirt featuring the Bay Guardians logo. Groups can learn more at email@example.com.
