Registration open for ‘Back to Our Roots’ workshop
Coastal Watch will host another “Back to Our Roots” workshop on March 6 at 10 a.m. The goal of the initiative is to spread awareness in the community about the importance of mangroves on the islands — trees that are important, yet vulnerable to coastal development. The public participates by “adopting” their own mangrove to grow and care for, which will later be planted at various mangrove restoration sites around Sanibel and Captiva. The workshop provides a deeper understanding of mangrove biology and their role in the marine ecosystem and the need for restoration in Southwest Florida. Participants will also learn how to care for their mangrove. To register, visit https://www.eventbrite.com/e/coastal-watch-back-to-our-roots-mangrove-workshop-tickets-141734223879.
