Tampa Bay Watch

This month's LWVSPA Sustainability Team’s Meetup is at Tampa Bay Watch (TBW), a local environmental nonprofit organization located in Tierra Verde just before the entrance of Fort De Soto Park.

Come join us for a briefing by President and CEO of TBW Peter Clark as he describes the science and hard work behind the recovery of Tampa Bay. There will be a half hour lecture, a tour of the facility and refreshments on the balcony for the beautiful sunset over the estuary waters.

Established in 1993, Tampa Bay Watch performs a variety of habitat restoration and protection projects throughout the year, relying upon thousands of volunteers to help the bay recover from its environmental problems. Individuals of all ages from community groups, scout troops, schools and others participate in native plantings, oyster bar creation, coastal cleanups, and wildlife protection each year, demonstrating environmental stewardship in its purest form. Tampa Bay Watch also hosts school field trips and summer camps to engage bay-area students in hands-on marine science labs, lessons, and service learning projects.

The efforts of Tampa Bay Watch to restore and protect the bay's habitat through stewardship and community awareness provide effective long term improvements to the bay, and empower our community with the knowledge to counteract our environmental problems.

Tampa Bay Watch will be opening a second education center and exhibition hall at the new St. Pete Pier in early 2020, where their citizen science programs will expand public involvement in scientific discovery.
