The Neighborhood Environmental Stewardship Team, or NEST, promotes neighborhood involvement in environmentally friendly projects to protect and restore our shared water resources. The NEST program operates at the neighborhood-level to improve watershed-scale resources, and no matter where you are in Sarasota County, you are in one of the County's watersheds. NEST projects focus on both education and hands-on activities like storm drain marking, neighborhood cleanup, watershed friendly landscaping, pond, lake, and bay shoreline restoration, and water body monitoring. In addition, the NEST program assists participating groups with the resources needed to complete projects. Currently the NEST program has over 15 participating sites that are improving five Sarasota County watersheds.
NEST's focus is to provide watershed education and get neighbors involved in activities
that improve their communities and their watershed.
