Special Funding Request for Lettuce Lake Conservation Park

Updated: Dec 21, 2023

Please consider a donation to the Tampa Audubon Society for the recent installation of a water feature at the Joel Jackson Nature Center at Lettuce Lake Conservation Park. The fountain provides water in the native plant garden, and visitors can view the feature from the Nature Center’s window and pathways at the park.

The water feature is constructed from natural stone and offers cycling water that splashes on the rocks and collects in shallow depressions for birds to drink and bathe. The sound of the water attracts birds, such as the Yellow Warbler in the video above. The water feature is designed to be low maintenance, inexpensive to operate, and natural in appearance.

Tampa Audubon Society worked with the Friends of the Hillsborough County Parks, the Suncoast Native Plant Society, and County Parks staff to accomplish this installation, but we need donations to help defray the cost of this project. It cost more than $5,000. Several people have already pledged to help. Will you?

Please send your donation made out to “Tampa Audubon Society” to Tampa Audubon Society, P.O. Box 320025, Tampa, Florida 33679-2025. Please write in the notation blank on your check: Lettuce Lake water feature.

Thanks for considering this special funding request.
