Just two weeks later, the sea oats are already growing. The payback from this project will keep coming, for years! It is described best in a letter from the County Parks Director, as shown below.

This passage from a letter written by Elizabeth Warren, the Parks Director of the Pinellas County Parks Department, to Friends of Fort De Soto, describes it well:

...sea oats are a vital dune plant, which create beach dunes by collecting blowing sands. As a result, cover is created for many living organisms. They also provide food for many of the migrant birds passing through on their way to the Caribbean and beyond in the fall.
