SCCF thanks restoration project volunteers

By SCCF - | Dec 16, 2020


The Sanibel-Captiva Conservation Foundation thanked the eight volunteers who joined it on Nov. 20 for the Hemp Key mangrove restoration project. The group planted hundreds of red mangrove propagules and distributed about 30 buckets of fossil shell. As an SCCF Marine Lab and Coastal Watch initiative, the project seeks to restore an extensive mangrove canopy that provides nesting habitat for many species of birds.
