3:30 p.m. – Shoreline at Oyster Lake: – The Choctawhatchee Basin Alliance (CBA) continues its Exotic Invasive Project on the coastal dune lakes. Exotic and invasive plants around Oyster Lake have recently been treated. Now you can help to get the native community re-established so the exotics are held back. Participants will learn about the multi-stage Exotic Invasive Project that CBA is coordinating in Walton County and will plant various types of native vegetation, such as sawgrass, cordgrass, duck potato, and blue-flag iris. Meet along the sides of the road at Dune Breeze Villas. Limited to 20 people. Wear closed toed shoes that can get wet, long pants, and long sleeved shirts. Bring bug and sun protection. CBA will provide water, gloves, and gardening tools. In the interest of conservation please bring your own canteen, bottle, or cup. CBA will provide water.  ::MAP:: To register: Click here
