Valentine's Day Virginia Key North Point Citizen Science Experience
Bring your Valentine to Virginia Key, enjoy a light breakfast and show your love for South Florida's coastal environments! This experience begins with a quick tutorial on using the Marine Debris Tracker application before heading onto the site for a beach clean-up. Then move on to our coastal hammock restoration site to record the tree phenology of the native trees our volunteers have planted this year. Phenology is the study of natural cues that are caused by the climate, such as flowers, fruits or fallen leaves. A naturalist walk will conclude the day. During the walk we will use the iNaturalist app to document animals and plants that occur on Virginia Key North Point.

There is no fee to participate but registration is required.

Time: 10:00 a.m - 12:00 p.m.
Location: Virginia Key North Point, Arthur Lamb Jr Rd, Miami, FL
