Save the Dunes!
The City of St. Pete Beach partnered with Keep Pinellas Beautiful, Ideas for Us, the Ocean Conservancy and more to embark upon a dune restoration mission. In order to re-introduce native plants to the habitat, volunteers planted 400 sea oats and 20 sea grape plants at Pass-A-Grille Dog Beach (1-199 Pass a Grille Way) on Saturday, Nov. 13.
$5,000? That’s a lot of clams…er, oyster beds!
