Florida Keys & Me takes participants into Florida Keys habitats to become part of citizen science while fostering a connection with the natural world.
Get empowered to make a difference in local environments, and learn scientific methods and techniques for working in the field.
Choose from three adventures:
Join us for a virtual walk through a hardwood hammock. Help identify native plant species, remove invasive species and create a species list for the hammock.
Mangroves and Marine Debris
Venture through a mangrove habitat and learn how marine debris is studied by FIU students. Categorize debris found to be added to the NOAA Marine Debris Tracker application.
Learn how to conduct a seagrass survey by participating in a live study - virtually. Fill out your own data sheets using identification guides to pinpoint species.
