IRC's 5th Lake Ida Parcel Volunteer Day a Success!

Tuesday, October 16, 2018

Thank you to everyone who came out on Saturday to continue our work for the 5th volunteer day on Lake Ida Parcel! We planted about 80 native plants, removed some invasive Earleaf acacia, and picked up some trash on the site. For more pictures, check out our Facebook!

A special thanks to Community Foundation for Palm Beach and Martin Counties for funding this project, Delray Beach Parks & Recreation for coming out to work with us, Indian Trails Nursery for providing the beautiful native plants, and to our boating chauffeurs Iain Patterson, John Miller, & the boys.

Atlantic Dunes Park Volunteer Day with Conduent Foundation!

Saturday, October 6, 2018

Thank you to everyone who came out to Atlantic Dunes Park in Delray this weekend to help IRC continue our restoration efforts at this beautiful park! Volunteers removed a large patch of Beach naupaka (Scaevola taccada), some Brazilian-pepper (Schinus terebinthifolius) and some Bowstring-hemp (Sansevieria hyacinthoides). In the area where Scaevola taccada was removed, volunteers planted 200 Sea-oats (Uniola paniculata), a few Tropical sage (Salvia coccinea) and Beach clustervine (Jacquemontia reclinata).

We would like to thank the Conduent Foundation for awarding IRC a mini-grant which allowed us to organize this restoration event! For more pictures, check out our Facebook!
