At 3099 Avenue C in Holmes Beach, volunteers will be planting coastal Florida native plants. They will also be clearing litter from the 34 acre Grassy Point Preserve. Additionally Native plants help restore habitat, stabilize coastline from erosion,  and attract a diverse array of wildlife.

The Bay Guardian volunteers will also team up with Around the Bend Nature Tours, Chile’ Restaurant Group, the city of Holmes Beach and Manatee County Department of Parks and Natural Resources to make the event a success. New volunteers will receive blue Bay Guardian t-shirts, environment education and a picnic lunch will follow too.

Volunteers should wear closed toe shoes, long pants, hats, sunscreen and reusable water bottles are preferred. Towels and gloves will be provided or volunteers can bring their own.

Contact Darcy Young at or call 941-955-8085 to register as a volunteer.
