Volunteers Make IRC's Pine Rockland Restoration Day a Great Success!

Wednesday, March 8, 2017

Thank you to the 25 volunteers who came out to IRC's Pine Rockland Resoration Event on Saturday! Volunteers of all backgrounds came from Palm Beach, Broward, and Miami-Dade County to help restore the beautiful private pine rockland located on the Medloks, participants helped remove invasive plants such as Jasminum fluminense (brazilian jasmine), Schefflera actinophylla (umbrellatree), and Tradescantia spathaceaoyster (Oysterplant). Volunteers also provided maintenance on the trails throughout the 5 acre pineland by trimming back palms. IRC was able to donate approximately 20 pine rockland native plants to the Medloks, thanks to the Connect to Protect Netowork!
