Keep Lee County Beautiful, Inc.
Mangroves perform two vital roles; they serve as a nursery for a vast number of sea creatures such as tarpon and wading birds and they also serve as a barrier against storm surges, erosion and hurricanes.
Planting Project details:
- Saturday, July 18, 2020 (Backup date if we get rained out is August 1, 2020)
- Meet at check-in location no later than 7:45 AM

Volunteers will be ferried over on boats from the launch site to the restoration location. (Approximately a 5-minute boat ride)
We will be planting 164 1-gallon sized mangrove trees along 600 feet of shoreline. There is the possibility of occasionally going into knee deep water to bypass obstacles.
