The Nature Conservancy presents Connect With Nature as part of the 2015 Baynanza event. Did you know that nature can help protect coastal Miami from sea-level rise, storms and erosion? Join us for family-friendly day of volunteering, nature hikes, and educational programs that highlight how coastal restoration is helping to make Miami a more resilient urban community.
From mangroves to dunes to coral reefs, Miami has an abundance of natural treasures that play a vital role in protecting our coastal city against erosion, storms and rising seas. Connect With Nature is a free, family-friendly event supporting Miami’s effort to become a more naturally-resilient coastal community.
In honor of Earth Day, volunteers will get their hands dirty and experience first-hand the power of communities working together to restore to coastal habitat in South Florida. Volunteers will remove invasive species, plant mangroves and collect real-time data for scientists. Connect With Nature will also feature kids’ activities by TimberNook, a beach cleanup, educational exhibitors, nature walks, food trucks and more.
