IRC staff members spent the day planting 90 Croton linearis plants at the National Key Deer Wildlife Refuge! We would like to give a huge thank you to the volunteers at the native nursery at John Pennekamp Coral Reef State Park for helping us propagate these plants. And another thank you to Crocodile Lake National Wildlife Refuge for storing the plants until they are ready for planting.
Although Hurricane Irma destroyed most of the Croton linearis IRC has planted at NKDR throughout the last year, our staff members observed signs of regrowth while installing the new plants.
We are excited to participate in #GiveMiamiDay this Thursday, November 16! To donate, simply go to our homepage and click on the "Give Miami Day" icon. You can also search for IRC on the Give Miami Day website.
By supporting IRC on Give Miami Day, you will help us restore more acres of critically imperiled pine rockland habitat while conserving the endangered organisms that call this habitat home.
Why donate on Give Miami Day? IRC will receive a bonus gift from the Miami Foundation for each donation of $25 - $10,000 received during the 24 hour period.
