Save Crystal River
“Kings Bay Restoration Update”
A 501c3 organization, Save Crystal River, is “restoring Florida, one blade of grass at a time”. After pioneering the King’s Bay Restoration Project for the Crystal River area, the organization partnered with Sea & Shoreline to remove invasive species and detrital materials from the bay. As a team, the groups have been able to open over 850 spring vents in the bay, as well as plant over 420,000 native grasses back into the bay. The results have been crystal clear to us! The alterations arising in King’s Bay have been significantly beneficial to the local wildlife, including copious fish species and, of course, the manatees!
