Navarre Beach Park Coastal Access and Dune Restoration

Restoration work in the Florida Restoration Area will focus on restoring water quality and habitat and replenishing and protecting wildlife populations like sea turtles, dolphins, birds, and oysters. We will provide and enhance recreational opportunities and restore habitats on federal lands.

Together, the trustees will restore natural resources—and the services they provide—that were injured by the spill. We will develop 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 will accept restoration project ideas from the public. The public will also have the opportunity to review and comment on any proposed project-specific restoration plans for the Florida Restoration Area. Once approved, we will then begin implementation and monitoring of the selected projects.
