[ARCHIVED] Pinellas County Will Provide Sea Oats to Coastal Municipalities

Pinellas County Coastal Management is again providing sea oats for planting to build up the beach dunes this summer. Sea oats aid in building dunes, which can help to protect infrastructure and our beaches.

The Town of Indian Shores will apply for the Florida Department of Environmental Protection permit(s) on behalf of its Indian Shores residents. 

Those interested should send the needed information to the Town's Sea Oats Coordinator Darlyn Stockfisch at

In order to be included in the Town's permit, the following items are required by Friday, June 24, 2022. 

  1. Name, address, email and phone #
  2. A map showing the planting address, exact planting location, and size (include dimensions) of the area being planted. This will allow the County to determine the number of sea oats needed and to track dune growth. They will be providing 1” or 2” sea oats for planting.

The Town will submit the entire package to Pinellas County and keep participants updated on delivery and pickup times.
