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!

Every Saturday during October 2022, the Coastal Dune Lake Advisory Board is hosting a DIY Coastal Dune Lake Cleanup. Individuals or Groups can come together to cleanup the water's edge and outfall areas of the South Walton Coastal Dune Lakes.
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!
