Protecting Our Mangrove Bayou

Coconut Telegraph

SRQ DAILY MONDAY BUSINESS EDITION MONDAY JUL 27, 2020

Florida’s mangroves and bayous are crucial to our state’s environmental health. Author Gayle Guynup spoke with Chief Implementation Officer, Bill Waddill, about The Bay's Mangrove Bayou and how mangrove's help stabilize the coastline ecosystem and prevent erosion along with how this impacts the future of the park.

As construction of Phase 1 continues, visitors to The Bay may notice the removal of some trees on site. In its current state, The Bay site is roughly 75 percent parking lot, but as progress continues, the area will become 75 percent open park space with thousands of additional trees planted during the various development phases. Phase 1 alone will have 100 new shade trees.
