Background Discussion
  • Florida Department of Environmental Protection (FDEP) Coastal Management Agreement #CM511 in the amount of $30,000 was executed by the Board on 10/25/16. These funds were awarded for habitat restoration activities and recreational amenities within Perico Preserve including invasive plant control, constructing a bird blind, and installation of interpretive signage.
  • Amendment #1 to the grant agreement with FDEP under their Coastal Partnership Initiative would allow remaining funds ($6,000), not used in the construction of a bird blind (which was completed in-house with surplus materials), to be reallocated to habitat restoration work including the purchase of additional native plants to aid in restoration.
