Mangrove Restoration Project!
Meet our 16 iCare Mangrove Masters! Each Mangrove Master is part of our iCare Program, a nature-based program for adults with special needs. All 16 participants individually raising 25 red mangroves through March 2020. Each participant received a stipend and gained valuable experience in plant maintenance and data recording. All 400 mangroves were planted in the Lake Worth Lagoon in the Ibis Isles Natural Area during first quarter 2020 and are happily growing!
