Vote for SHF!
The Scenic Highway Foundation (SHF) has submitted an application to idgroup’s Brand on Us Initiative! One local not-for-profit organization will receive over $100,000 worth of idgroup’s branding and organizational development services.
We are one of several organizations that have applied, but only one will be selected. Although all do great work, each of these groups have other sources of fiscal support and most have paid staff. SHF is a small group of volunteers who have made a huge impact over the years.
Some our achievements include:
- Designation of Scenic Highway as the first “Florida Scenic Highway”
- Chimney placed on National Register of Historic Places
- Enhancement and expansion of Chimney Park
- Enhancement and expansion of Bay Bluffs Park
- Development of Scenic Highway Master Plan
- Working with FDOT to replant I-10 denuded area with native trees instead of palms
- Oral history series thrice yearly
The Pensacola Scenic Bluffs has partnered with Ocean Hour.
The purpose of the partnership is to support a clean environment for the seashores, oceans and marine life for the benefit of marine live and the reduction of ocean debris and its affect on human health.
Plastics don’t biodegrade, they photodegrade and just become smaller pieces.
To promote positive human actions as to human behavior towards the ocean environment and how ocean pollution can and will have a negative impact on the planet and the quality of human life through the food chain. Also, efforts to bring youth groups into and participate in the Ocean Debris issues that they will inherit during their lifetime.
The Pensacola Scenic Bluffs and Ocean Hour are looking for volunteers to help remove waste from various locations. For a list of volunteer opportunities as well times and locations, please visit the Calendar page.
