Coastal Cleanup, Fall 2011

Many students participated in a coastal cleanup removing an entire trailer of trash from the area around Project Greenshores. Project Greenshores is one of the largest seagrass, saltmarsh and oyster reef ecosystem restoration projects in NWFL. This is located on the Pensacola side of the 3 mile bridge which crosses Pensacola Bay. Garbage this close to a body of water is not only an obvious eye-sore, but it is also a threat to coastal species and water quality.
This area is called Hawkshaw Lagoon. A historic Pensacola Waterway, called Washer Woman Creek, discharges from underground to this lagoon creating a unique ecosystem.
