Volunteering at St. Martins Marsh Aquatic Preserve Quick Topics

Volunteer efforts at St. Martins Marsh Aquatic Preserve focus around keeping the Nature Coast beautiful. Staff are active participants of the Adopt-A-Shore Program, the Citrus County version of the International Coastal Coastal Cleanup - either hosting a site or helping to coordinate another site. The derelict crab trap removal program is another way to help keep the preserve as pristine as possible. Crab traps often become lost or abandoned because of lost buoys, but the traps continue to catch crabs and other wildlife. During a brief off-season, traps are identified at low tide and removed by staff, local crabbers and other members of the community.

For information about volunteering at St. Martins Marsh Aquatic Preserve for these or other events, please contact Tim Jones at Timothy.W.Jones@dep.state.fl.us or (352) 562-0450.
