Animal life on the Fenholloway River

Purpose of the Fenholloway Water Quality Project

Foley Cellulose is involved in one of the most ambitious environmental restoration projects in Florida conservation history. When completed, the Fenholloway Water Quality Project will restore a stream formerly designated by the state as “industrial” to fishable-swimmable standards, create conditions for seagrasses to return to their natural range in near-shore Gulf waters near the Fenholloway River, and restore a significant freshwater wetland. Our efforts are supported by the Taylor County Board of County Commissioners.

Restoring the Seagrass

Seagrass beds are considered the foundational building block of the Apalachee Bay ecosystem. Foley Cellulose’s restoration efforts are making positive impacts to support seagrass growth. Learn more about how Foley Cellulose is protecting the Gulf.
