Give a Day for Tampa Bay

"Give A Day For The Bay" is a volunteer program sponsored by the Tampa Bay Estuary Program to directly involve citizens in restoring Tampa Bay.

Half-day workdays are held on Saturdays several times a year, at various parks and preserves throughout the Tampa Bay watershed. Removal of invasive plants is a primary focus of the workdays, along with native plant installation, to help restore important coastal and upland habitats throughout the bay watershed.

Volunteers of all ages work hard and are rewarded with lunch and the knowledge that they have played a part in helping to preserve the diversity and integrity of the bay's natural ecosystems.

Give a Day for Tampa Bay

TBEP relies on its local government and non-profit partners to identify parks in need of work, and to assist with logistical support.

Many thanks to TECO Energy for sponsoring our 2013-2014 Give A Day For The Bay workdays. TECO Energy's generous support will pay for lunches and a thank-you gift for our volunteers, as well as equipment such as trash bags and work gloves. Thank you, TECO Energy, for being our first Emerald Sponsor!
