22apr8:00 am12:00 pmEarth Day Longleaf Restoration at Deer Lake ParkVolunteer Opportunity: Marquis Fine Cabinetry Teams Up with Florida State Parks

Event Details

Marquis Fine Cabinetry has partnered up with Grayton Beach
Florida State Park for Earth Day 2021 to restore Deer Lake by pulling Sand
Pines in efforts to keep the newly planted Longleaf’s thriving. At one time,
according to Chris Dixson, Grayton Beach State Park Services Specialist, there
used to be 90 million acres of the Longleaf Ecosystem. However, now there is
less than 5% due to the timber industry. The area that this volunteer event
will be focusing on previously had North Florida Slash Pine and Sand Pines,
which migrated into the space when the Longleaf’s were removed for their
timber. About two weeks ago, Grayton Beach Florida State Park planted 500
Longleaf’s. In order to keep the Longleaf’s growing and surviving, thousands of
tiny Sand Pines need to be hand pulled before they overpopulate the zone again.

 

Marquis’ Milano Collection is Earth Day friendly as it is a
high-density moisture resistant board that is 100% post-consumer recycled
material, which saves more than 10,000 trees/day. There is also no added
formaldehyde to the construction, rather, Marquis uses an eco-friendly bonding
agent that creates the hermetic seal against water.

 

Please join us for this volunteer opportunity to continue
the efforts in improving our beautiful beaches, which we are lucky to call
home. Come prepared with snacks and leather gardening gloves. Marquis will
gladly provide water.
