MANGROVE REGENERATION CLEANUPS

Florida has the longest coastline on the mainland United States. The latest IPCC 2022 Report identifies Florida as an area facing the worst affects of climate change.  Miami-Dade County, with more than 2.7 million residents and $246 billion in real estate bordered by beautiful Biscayne Bay, faces the gravest risk.  With the third largest school district in the United States, and 75% of our residents living in low-lying coastal areas, we have more students at risk than anywhere else in the United States.  But there are natural solutions available now, like regenerating mangroves, which absorb carbon, provide a breeding ground for fish, and protect against coastal erosion. South Florida is undertaking massive efforts, both city-wide and grass roots, to restore our coastlines and mitigate against climate change.  Join us to restore, regenerate, and replant. Scale it up.
