PENSACOLA BEACH—Join Healthy Gulf for a beach ecology walk along the shifting sands and waters of Santa Rosa Island at Pensacola Beach. We’ll hike along both the Gulf and Sound side of the Island, exploring the changing plant communities and life along the shoreline. Along the way we’ll learn more about terrestrial and aquatic life by examining what has washed ashore, including seeds, shells, plants, fish, crabs and other items both natural and man-made.  

The hike is a total length of about four miles and will take about two hours to complete. The exact meeting location at Pensacola Beach will be provided upon registration. Space is limited in order to ensure a quality experience, so to reserve a spot or for more information please email christian@healthygulf.org or call (850) 687-9968.
