In partnership with Escambia County, the City of Pensacola, and Wood, SCAPE is developing a watershed management plan for Carpenter Creek and Bayou Texar in Pensacola, Florida. Broadly, this plan focuses on access, water quality, ecological conditions, and opportunities for parallel restoration and recreation projects throughout the 18 square mile watershed. Today, both Carpenter Creek and Bayou Texar suffer from pollution and are largely cut off from adjacent communities by infrastructure and overgrowth. A key part of the plan is to protect, enhance, and restore habitat and ecological space while expanding public access and recreational amenities connecting residents to the waterways for stewardship and enjoyment. The project kicked off in February 2020.
