Description: Would you like to help the park out with an important event. One that could actually save some of the park\'s trails and valuable ecosystems. Well if you do please call and sign up to help August 12-13 with the UCF natural shoreline restoration project. That weekend from 9 am to 1 pm Scientist and students from the University of Central Florida Coastal and Estuarine lab in conjunction with De Soto National Memorial Rangers and volunteers will place oyster shell bags and plant mangrove seedling in an effort to stabilize and create new shorelines. With the ever increasing threat of gradual rising seas levels many of the parks trails will be threatened. This project and many like it will potentially help reduce these effects of global climate change on the park. With your help, us as a community will take action and make a stake in preserving one of the areas best preserved and beloved sites. Please call 941-792-0458 or email us at Deso_interpretive_staff@nps.gov for details
