Friends of Salt Creek (FoSC), founded in July 2019, advocates for an undervalued waterway in south St. Petersburg. The group was officially registered as a Florida non-profit corporation in August 2020. Contact saltcreekjournal@gmail if you’d like to get involved. A donation will support our efforts!

We conduct clean-ups and community gatherings on scheduled Saturday mornings, September to May. We meet at the 22nd Ave. South parking lot of Bartlett Park, 10:00-12:00. Please mask up for Covid prevention, and bring your own water. We also participate in Florida Lakewatch, a volunteer monitoring program of Florida’s lakes, estuaries, rivers, and springs. Monthly samples are gathered for a long-term database that documents past and present water conditions.

Friends of Salt Creek is proud to partner with these groups:

Mission Statement: Salt Creek celebrates the natural and human qualities of Salt Creek, which runs from Bayboro Harbor (off Tampa Bay) to Lake Maggiore and beyond, through the heart of St. Petersburg, Florida. We monitor and protect this resource, advocate, and follow the stream as a model of unity and engagement, representing the full diversity of communities through which it flows.

Friends of Salt Creek is supported by the Tampa Bay Estuary Program. Get your Tarpon Tag today!
