Some 136,000 longleaf pines were planted at the 16,683-acre St. Sebastian River State Buffer Preserve for this multi-year project. The project will help improve the watershed and provide habitat for 23 distinct and rare natural plant communities, i.e. water sundew, butterfly orchid, celestial lily; 28 protected animal species, i.e. Florida manatee, red cockaded woodpecker; and 26 protected plant species. The project will also enhance areas used for low impact recreation such as hiking, camping, and swimming.
This project was supported by our corporate partner, the Alcoa Foundation.
