The Rock Ponds project is the largest coastal ecosystem restoration project in Tampa Bay. The site was historically agriculture fields, shell mining pits, and surrounded by non-native and nuisance plant species. This site has been partially filled and recontoured to provide over two miles of new Tampa Bay shorelines and islands in need of plants. This project is open to all ages. The address of the meeting location is 4235 Lavender Road, Ruskin, FL 33570.Click here to register for the planting!
