Ecological Restoration Volunteer Day with Loggerhead Marinelife Center
We are excited to share that our Restoring the Gold Coast (RGC) program is expanding into northern Palm Beach County! On Saturday, February 25, we held an ecological restoration volunteer day with Loggerhead Marinelife Center (LMC) staff and volunteers along the beach dunes adjacent to LMC (Juno Dunes Natural Area). We planted over 100 plants including sea-oats (Uniola paniculata), beach morningglory (Ipomoea imperati), inkberry (Scaevola plumieri), sea lavender (Tournefortia gnaphalodes), beach creeper (Ernodea littoralis), and beach ragweed (Ambrosia hispida). Thank you to Neglected Plants, staff and volunteers from LMC, staff from PBC Environmental Resources Management, and staff from PBC Parks and Recreation. Also shout out to Roots n Shoots and Delray Beach Children's Garden for growing and supplying the beach ragweed we used at this planting event! For more photos, click here.
