Students "Discover Their Backyard" with SEAS

On December 15th and 16th, 2014, four different classes of 6th, 7th and 8th grade science students from David Lawrence K-8 Center visited the Biscayne Bay Campus to participate in SEAS' "Discover Our Backyard" Program. Students learned about exotic invasive species and local ecosystems, with field work focused on the removal of category 1 invasive species' Scaevola sericea (Beach naupaka) and Thespesia populnea (Seaside mahoe), helping to restore the native mangrove habitat on campus.
