Our City on the Sea - SeaGrass & Sustainability

What can YOU do to preserve Miami’s precious resources? How does sea level rise affect our community? Take a wade in our sea grass beds and learn from our naturalists how the health of our sea grasses will be impacted by sea level rise and how it will be affecting our community. Participants would explore the sea grass beds that grow in our shallow waters off Key Biscayne and then predict how the marine landscape would change as sea levels rise. This program is designed for visitors to Miami-Dade County, as well as, our middle and high school students to focus on sustainable resource management. What better way to prepare our community for sea level rise than to give all of our students and visitors access to this information and immerse them in the very resources we hope for them to protect?
