Bonfires, Fireworks Prohibited on St. Lucie County Beaches

Post Date:05/13/2020 7:56 AM

St. Lucie County reminds residents and visitors that bonfires and fireworks are prohibited on St. Lucie County beaches. Please help us keep Hutchinson Island sea-turtle friendly, especially during the summer nesting season, which runs from March 1 – Nov. 15.

Hutchinson Island’s 21 miles of coastline is designated as critical nesting ground for endangered and threatened sea turtle populations, including Loggerhead, Green and Leatherback turtles.

Recently, the St. Lucie County Sheriff’s Office shutdown a group of people having a bonfire near Normandy Beach on South Hutchinson Island. With the Memorial Day weekend coming soon, St. Lucie County’s Code Compliance staff asks residents to leave fireworks to professionals. More importantly, please do not shoot fireworks off over St. Lucie County beaches, as the debris from these explosives leaves behind trash on our public beaches, while the flashes and loud sounds disturb wildlife.

If anyone observes sea turtle nest poaching or harassment of sea turtles on the beach, please call 911 or the Florida Fish and Wildlife hotline at 1-888-404-FWCC. 

For additional information on sea turtle friendly beaches, please contact Natural Resources Extension Agent Ken Gioeli at 772-462-1660.  For Code Compliance questions, please contact Building and Code Regulations Manager Monica Graziani at 772-462-1553.
