oaks by the bay park


Nestled in the heart of St Andrews is the Old Sentry Oak. It is estimated to be 250 years old and although it survived Hurricane Michael, it sustained damage that will require at least one of it's lower branches to be cut to ensure the tree remains healthy. (Oaks by the Bay Park)

canopy covered walking


Panama City had four canopy covered walking tracks located within various parks prior to Hurricane Michael. With an estimated 1M trees lost in the City, there is no better time to create the future we want to see, than now. #replant
