Living Shoreline Cleanup at Walton Scrub - Day 1
We will be working with St. Lucie County, the City of Port St. Lucie, ORCA and many other to build a living shoreline along the coast adjacent to Walton Scrub Preserve. On these two days we will need a lot of help because we will be cleaning up garbage but also removing invasive plants from the shore, one of the requirements for building a living shoreline. There is a lot of work to be done here in order to make the shore as pristine as we can so that we can better guarantee the shoreline's survival. This will be a future site of IRSC's Living Shoreline supported by Dr. Kyle Bartow's Endowed Teaching Chair through the IRSC Foundation and we would like student investment in the project so that there is investment in its health and success. Please bring any friends or family that are interested in helping to improve the community and improve our natural habitats by helping with clean up the shore.
Please bring: Water to drink, long pants (brazilian pepper is present there and can cause a rash), sunscreen and possibly a breathable long sleave shirt, shoes that you can get dirty/wet, gloves will be provided but if you have a pair that you want to bring, picnic style lunch (there are restaurants but they are a few miles away on US1).
