Tampa Bay Watch
With your help, we are protecting Florida’s largest open water estuary. Tampa Bay Watch, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit stewardship program dedicated exclusively to the charitable and scientific purpose of protecting and restoring the marine and wetland environments of the Tampa Bay estuary. By expanding community involvement in hands-on restoration and protection projects around the bay, we strive to counteract the huge loss of wetland habitat over the past 100 years. Tampa Bay Watch trains and organizes citizen volunteers, students, at-risk youth, and civic organizations to participate in environmental projects while heightening community awareness of the fragile nature and importance of the environment.

Tampa Bay Conservancy
Tampa Bay Conservancy is a land conservation organization devoted to protecting the region’s natural, agricultural and scenic heritage. The geographic focus of the Tampa Bay Conservancy includes Hillsborough, Pasco, Pinellas and Manatee Countieswith the potential to explore protection initiatives beyond these boundaries. Special thanks to the Elizabeth Ordway Dunn Foundation for all of their support.

Earth Force
Earth Force engages young people as active citizens who improve the environment and their communities now and in the future. Suncoast Earth Force opened its doors in the summer of 2000 and has seen continual growth in the number of educators and students it serves. Without the educators, Community Board, donors, volunteers and supporters, Suncoast would not be where it is today.
