Navarre Beach Park Coastal Access and Dune Restoration

Restoration work in the Florida Restoration Area is focusing on restoring water quality and wetlands, coastal, and nearshore habitats as well as replenishing and protecting sea turtles, marine mammals, birds, and oysters. We are also providing and enhancing recreational opportunities and restoring habitats on federal lands.

Together, the trustees are restoring natural resources—and the services they provide—that were injured by the spill. We are developing project-specific restoration plans that are consistent with the resource allocations laid out in the programmatic restoration plan (see chart below).  As part of the restoration planning process, we are accepting restoration project ideas from the public. The public also has the opportunity to review and comment on any proposed project-specific restoration plans for the Florida Restoration Area. Once a plan is approved, we will implement and monitor the selected projects.
