Mangrove Potting Project

RSVP to join Brevard Zoo staff and learn about the importance of mangroves and the Indian River Lagoon! Participants will learn how to help the ecosystem, and have the opportunity to plant a mangrove seedling. These plants will be used in shoreline restoration along the Indian River Lagoon, which will provide a habitat for native wildlife, improve the Lagoon's water quality and protect the shoreline from erosion. Participating students are eligible to earn Service-Learning hours.
