Planting Croton linearis at the National Key Deer Wildlife Refuge!

Tuesday, November 21, 2017

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.
