Mill Bayou SlideShow
A narrow spit of mangroves and sand pines runs out to the middle of the Little Manatee River at Mill Bayou. It is home to Gopher tortoises and Scarlet King snakes, woodpeckers and hummingbirds, foxes and other wild creatures. Pines, palms, oaks and cedars shade the uplands, while mangroves and tall grasses line the shore. Lupine, sparkleberry, prickly pear, silk grass, hog plum and coral bean announce each season with wildflowers, and provide fruits and nectar for wild animals, birds and butterflies.

The little spit in the river is beautiful and full of life — so naturally a developer wants to bulldoze the whole thing.

Join us at the public hearing to defend the river and her habitat.
