Local group donates UTV to help state park 
Stump Pass Beach State Park is finally receiving a much needed vehicle to transport rangers and volunteers around the park's 1.3 miles of trails and shoreline. The UTV will be most helpful to park staff and volunteers as they work on the many projects such as shorebird stewarding, sea turtle patrol, removing heavy debris from the beach and eradicating invasive species.
The new vehicle is being made possible thanks to monies raised by the Friends of Stump Pass (FOSP), a subgroup of Barrier Island Parks Society (BIPS), during the “Beach Bash” fundraiser. The event was held January 25, 2020, at the scenic Sunset Terrace, located at the Lighthouse Grille in Englewood. Over 120 FOSP friends came together at the sold out event to show their support at the enjoyable evening that offered fantastic food, caribbean music, and silent auction. The popular event raised $9,259.24 (after expenses) with a goal of purchasing the new Polaris Ranger 500 for use at the park.
FOSP would like to thank event sponsors: Coastal Engineering, Coastal Wildlife Club, Howell Concrete & Land Service, Ingman Marine, Leslie Brown Team Keller Williams, Nature Connections Photography, Lemon Bay Playhouse, Kathleen Damewood/Re/Max Alliance Group, and Oils 4 Healthy Living for their generous support in helping them reach this ambitious goal.
