An important part of our Restoring the Gold Coast (RGC) program is working with a wide range of collaborators and partners including local schools.
We will be working with Atlantic Community High School students (77% of which are Title 1 students) to restore portions of the municipal beach in Delray Beach. We would like to run three field trips for these students where they spend a morning on the beach getting their hands dirty while they learn about conservation through exotic removal, native planting, and data collection.
We will also be working with Boca Community High School's AICE Environmental Management class to restore portions of coastal habitat in Boca Raton. We plan on running two field trips focused on native planting and data collection.
In order to run each field trip, we need to raise $600 per field trip to cover the cost of transporting the students by bus from the school to the beach and back. Please consider donating towards this transportation cost! Simply donate online or mail us a check and make a note that the donation for student transportation!
