Join us on Tuesday, Nov. 19 at Opa-locka Branch Library at 4:30 p.m. to learn how global climate change is impacting your community and what Plan(T) is doing to help combat it!
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 residents to plant mangrove propagules, or seedlings, in their own backyards. 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 backyard, 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!
So come and get your free mangrove seedling and create an elevation-marked flag to paint at home so you can be part of our county-wide art project!
If you can’t join us at this event, stay on the look out for more presentations on our site. You can also follow us on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter for updates!
We need to be planning for our future, so start by planTing for the future!
