What does a colonial nesting seabird colony and a new restaurant have in common? In most cases, not much. But in Navarre Beach, it’s the same caring people.
Culver’s, a new chain restaurant based out of Wisconsin, has a new location opening up in Navarre beach. Prior to opening, the owner, Randy Smith, brought the staff he was training out to help at a volunteer opportunity hosted by Audubon Florida.
Audubon Florida oversees the management of a nesting seabird colony with Black Skimmers and Least Terns. Currently 100 Black Skimmers and over 200 Least Terns have made this site their nesting spot for the summer. Part of the management for this site is to set up chick fencing along the shoulder of the road to prevent unflighted chicks from running into the road. This is quiet an effort and over 30 people showed up to help including the Culver’s crew.
