New Trees in Grayton planted April 20, 2019
The trees were planted in downtown Grayton along Hotz Avenue and near the boat ramp to Western Lake as part of the ongoing stormwater project. Trees on the Coast donated the live oaks. These trees will be located in the county right-of-way and coupled with the trees planted a few years ago will help establish a beautiful canopy for downtown Grayton.
The second project is upcoming and will be located on County Road 30A. Trees on the Coast is proposing to plant 30 live oak trees along the south side of 30A, immediately to the west of the Grayton Beach intersection (30A and 283).
Bald eagles have been spotted on Grayton beach. They have been enjoying the quiet beach and great fishing.
