Sierra Club Sponsoring Sea Oat Planting at Fort DeSoto Park

The Sierra Club will join Americans across the country volunteering on September 11 in honor and remembrance of those who bravely serve the country. The great outdoors are part of America's heritage. Protecting our lands is a way to honor the National Day of Service.

Here in Tampa Bay we will help Ft. DeSoto Park create new dunes on the far end of North Beach by planting 10,000 new sea oats, and help clean up after Labor Day. Let's show some love for one of America's best beaches as we honor those who have served America.

But this is not your typical beach clean-up.

Go Beyond Oil Challenge: Use as little oil as possible to get to Ft. DeSoto! Who can go the farthest, bring the greatest number of people, get to Ft. DeSoto by land & by sea, and use the least amount of oil/person? Points for creativity! To truly move beyond oil to a clean energy future that makes America more secure, we all need to minimize our personal use as we preserve our natural heritage.
