Community project: Clean-Up and Preserve the Biggest Pine Rocklands Habitat outside of Everglades National Park - Saturday June 27th: Miami-Dade’s “Larry & Penny Thompson Park”

It was my honor to participate in the Clean-up project at one of Miami-Dade County’s natural parks - Larry & Penny Thompson Park.  It was made even better by the fact that this was a family event. Alexandra and Katherine participated alongside me and over 100 other people to make this event successful.

I am posting some photos from this very successful event – Thank you to the organizers and participants.

More photos from this event are available on Facebook.
