Mangrove Restoration Project at BBC

Led by environmental coordinator, Jennifer Grimm, students from FIU's School of Environment and Society work to gather and propagate thousands of mangrove seedlings as part of an ongoing mangrove restoration project begun in April 2009. The project benefits the BBC campus' neighbor, Oleta River State Park and involves high school students from the Alonzo and Tracy Mourning High School. Combining research, education, outreach and engagement, this project represents the kind of collaboration the School of Environment and Society wants to encourage.
