Keep Pensacola Beautiful has been a recipient of three 5 Star and Urban Waters restoration grants.
The first is the Living Shoreline demonstration area that was built at Bayview Park, Bayou Texar. It consists of 22 oyster reefs with native vegetation. The restoration site is by the boat launches and provides education signage on the project, the native plantings, and wildlife.
The second grant restored 1200 linear feet of shoreline at ten (10) private shoreline properties along Bayou Texar.
The third grant is in progress and will restore 1200 feet of shoreline at eight adjoining properties along Bayou Grande. A total of 39 oyster reefs will be installed.
