plantings for Bahia Beach require help

Tampa Bay Watch needs 100 volunteers to plant salt marsh at Bahia Beach in Ruskin from 9 a.m. to noon Saturday. This work day is family-friendly and open to environmentally conscious people of all ages. The 144-acre parcel, which will be restored to its natural state, was purchased by Hillsborough County through the Environmental Lands Acquisition and Protection Program. The new marsh will provide habitat for fish, birds and mammals. To sign up, go to tampabaywatch.org or call (727) 867-8166.
