South Florida is home to diverse coastal ecosystems, including mangrove forests, coastal dunes, wetlands, and hardwood hammocks - all of which have been negatively affected by coastal development and storms in recent years. By restoring these coastal dunes, we can provide habitat for countless species, beautify cities and parks, increase storm protection, prevent coastal erosion, and increase carbon sequestration.
Phase 1 of this project involved restoring soil stabilization along the front beaches. We are now at Phase 2, which involves restoring the inner parts of the island with trees that historically filled the area, such as Buttonwoods, Gumbo Limbos, Sea Grapes and mangroves.
With your support, we will plant and restore this critical watershed while also educating the local community and youth about restoration through hands-on involvement, in-turn promoting lifelong stewardship.
