Thank You for Making a Difference at #HVKBP

21 Apr
The Virginia Key Beach Park Trust would like to extend a BIG THANK YOU to the schools and organizations who put countless of hours and energy in giving back to beautify the park environment and clean the beach shoreline all while learning a big part of Miami’s black history.
Recently we hosted both Miami Country Day School and Cushman Day School. They spent a day planting native trees and removing exotic plants species with our partner organization Treemendous Miami and picking debris and trash from the shoreline.
There were eighty-nine 3rd graders that came out from Miami Country Day School and experienced a cultural talk with Virginia Key Beach Park Trust Executive Director Guy Forchion, a nature beach walk with Education & Volunteer Coordinator Charlie Weyman and native planting with Ken Fairman, Vice President of Treemendous Miami.
Cushman Day School came with twelve high school students and planted 25 Gumbo Limbo and Green Buttonwood around HVKBP’s railroad area. This planting is part of a high school project to help reduce the CO2 levels in the atmosphere one tree at a time.
Big thanks to Treemendous, Mauricio Velasquez of Miami Country Day, Cushman Day School and Elvis Cruz of the South Florida Palm Society for coming to the park to help restore the park‘s native flora.
