The Choctawhatchee Bay Chapter was the 2nd Place National Winner in the Conservation Committee’s 2014 Chapters Contest for their entry of “Blackwater River Patriot Pines Living Memorial." The chapter, in partnership with the Florida State Forestry Service, planted 5,000 pine seedlings in a stand at the Blackwater River State Forest in Milton in honor of their Revolutionary War Patriots.

A virtual booklet detailing the project and 57 patriots has been published.
