COASTAL RESOURCES GROUP
CRG is a 501 c 3 non-profit organization that works with public and private partners to conserve Florida's native coastal wetlands. Founded in 2004 it provides scientific and technical expertise in the ecology, restoration and management of mangroves, salt marshes, and seagrasses. CRG’s biologists have been involved in habitat restoration in the Florida Keys since 1980, carrying out Florida’s largest seagrass restoration project, and managing the original Keys Restoration Trust Fund in the 1990s. Our Florida Keys projects are financed through the Keys Restoration Fund.
