Scenic Highway Clean Up
Thank you Mr. Apple for you generous donation of breakfast snacks for the volunteers that came to Scenic Highway Foundation/Ocean Hour beach-clean up the second Saturday of each month. Even though the volunteers collected for only an hour, they were able to remove over 2500 lbs. of debris total for this year. An impressive amount!!!
Please say thank you to Mr. Apple when you go to Apple Market—the place to shop!!!!
Ever’man Cooperative Charity Eco-Friendly Bag Program
Hey, SHF friends and members! You can shop for healthy groceries and raise a little money for Chimney Park. For every ecofriendly bag you bring to Ever’man Cooperative during the months of January and February 2018, you may choose Scenic Highway Foundation to be the recipient of 5¢. The nickels really add up and will be used for enhancements to Chimney Park on Scenic Highway.
A big ‘Thank You’ to Ever’man and to all our friends who support Scenic Highway
Happy New Year from the Scenic Highway Foundation!
On behalf of the Scenic Highway Foundation, I would like to wish you a Happy New Year! We hope that 2018 brings you love, peace, and happiness.
The Scenic Highway Foundation (SHF) isn’t wasting any time getting things rolling this year and we are hoping you can help!
We’re looking for a few good people to help us in reaching our goals this year. The board is in need of individuals who can help with tasks that the current board do not always have time to do. Specifically, we need help with the following:
- Sending out thank-you notes.
- Assistance in writing grants.
- Picking up newsletters from the printers, stamping and mailing them.
- Attend our monthly clean ups at Bay Bluffs and Chimney Park.
- Participate in webinars as a representative of SHF and report back to the Board.
None of these require you to become a member of the board. However, we do not want to discourage you if you want to be part of the board.
Please Contact Us if you are interested in helping in anyway you can. Thank-you!

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.
