In 2016 the City of Satellite Beach, in partnership with the Marine Resources Council (MRC), developed and built a living shoreline around City Hall’s northern pond, replacing existing St. Augustine grass with various Florida natives and mangroves. This was done in order to provide new habitat for wildlife, beautify City Hall’s iconic pond, and to improve the pond’s overall water quality. Dozens of volunteers from the local community and the MRC, as well as City staff, helped to plant hundreds of natives within newly laid coquina rock.
For questions pertaining to the project please contact the City’s environmental programs coordinator, Nicholas Sanzone, either by phone (21-773-4407 (ex. 227)) or email (email@example.com).
