Palmetto Bay Pine area clean up - Coral Reef Park - look forward to a similar opportunity for the 22 acres at the PBVC

I continue in the fight to save imperiled Pine Rockland Habitat and assisting in taking care of what we have preserved.  I am posting some photos from a community effort here in our Village.
Coral Reef Park is home to 5 acres +/- of Pine Rocklands.  Some of the area is turning to oak/hardwood hammock.  Palmetto Bay hosted a pinelands clean up as park of the Saturday, 11/5/2016 events.  

Professions, enviro activists and students volunteered and worked together for the second consecutive year to clean up this precious Pine Rockland Preserve area located in Coral Reef Park. This clean-up included removal of debris, loose clippings and removal of invasive species of plants inside the park’s Pine Rockland Preserve area.  

Thank you to all who participated including students from BIOTECH, Riviera and Ferguson High Schools; The Miami Pine Rockland Coalition; members/enviro activists from Livable Cutler; local residents and park staff.  It was another outstanding community effort.  

I will add additional photos as received and as time permits to upload here.  CLICK HERE to view the photos that I have posted on my Facebook page.
