October Is Coastal Dune Lake Month: Events

October 3, 2022 by SoWal Staff

Walton County has officially designated October as Coastal Dune Lake Month. This is a new designation, and is a welcome addition to our calendar with many ways to honor our unique SoWal Coastal Dune Lakes through education and activities.

The Coastal Dune Lake (CDL) Advisory Board was established in 2002 by the BCC in an effort to protect our South Walton Coastal Dune Lakes. In celebration of the past 20 years of protection efforts, the board will be hosting a month-long celebration to include community education and outreach, coastal dune lake cleanup activities, tours of the coastal dune lakes, restoration activities and more!

Instructions: Pick you favorite coastal dune lake, pick up trash, place trash at a TDC trash receptacle, post a picture on the county Facebook page with the hashtag: #CDLCleanUp and thank you to all who participate!
