The Choctawhatchee Basin Alliance and AmeriCorps held their first From Shelves to the Shores program June 9 on the front lawn of the Destin Library. The hands-on science experience was for children ages 5 to 12 years of age and provided an opportunity for youth to play an active role in the restoration of Choctawhatchee Bay. At the conclusion of the program, children will participate in a field trip to a Choctawhatchee Bay restoration site to plant grasses they have grown during the summer.
