The Nature Conservancy, Patricia and Phillip Frost Museum of Science and its Museum Volunteers for the Environment (MUVE) and Historic Virginia Key Beach Park are combining forces to get the community to Connect With Nature on Saturday, April 11. This free event will allow attendees to play an important role in protecting our coastal city while having fun. The event will take place at 4020 Virginia Beach Drive in Miami.
In honor of Earth Day, volunteers will get their hands dirty and experience first-hand the power of communities working together to restore coastal habitat in South Florida. Volunteers will help remove invasive species, plant native mangroves and collect real-time data to help scientists learn more about Virginia Key.
Connect With Nature is a family-friendly event that supports Miami’s effort to become a more naturally resilient coastal community. The event will feature kids’ activities, a beach cleanup, educational exhibitors, nature walks, food trucks and much more. Parking fee is $6.
