Calling all Miami Beach Senior High students and faculty ! Join us on Thursday, Dec. 5 to learn how global climate change is impacting you and what Plan(T) is doing to help combat it!
If you are wondering why Miami Beach Senior High has 2,500 mangrove seedlings along classroom and hallway windows, it’s because of us !
Plan(T) is local environmental artist, Xavier Cortada’s latest participatory eco-art project. It aims to expand South Florida’s mangrove forest by asking you to plant mangrove propagules, or seedlings, in your back or front yard. Mangroves are salt-tolerant plants that act as natural barriers against storm surge, sequester carbon dioxide and help grow our native tree canopy. By planting them in your yard, you are taking a step towards a better and safer future for South Florida.
We will be giving a presentation as to how Plan(T) came to be, how Plan(T) is combating climate change , and how you can join the movement.
Be ready to get your free mangrove seedling and to create an elevation-marked flag so you can be part of our county-wide art project.
We need to be planning for our future, so start by planTing for the future!
