Help us pot propagules!


We've gathered up some propagules and it's time we got them into pots. Once the propagules are potted, they will be moved down to our Sebastian property where our greenhouse is located. The propagules will be cared for and grown into young mangroves, which we will plant along the Lagoon's shoreline to restore habitat for wildlife and stabilize the shores.

Starting in December, we will have a potting event every week, on either a Friday or a Saturday. The events will be from 10 a.m. - 12 p.m. at the Ted Moorhead Lagoon House, located at:

3275 Dixie Hwy. NE
Palm Bay, FL 32905

The scheduled dates are December 6, 13, 21, and 28, and January 4, 11, 18 and 25. You can view the event calendar by clicking here.

You do not need to R.S.V.P. unless you plan to bring a very large group. If you would like to schedule a specific time to do potting with your group other than the above-scheduled times, please call us at 321-725-7775 or email me at aquatic@mrcirl.org.

We are more than happy to schedule an event with you and your organization or group for potting at the Lagoon House if you are unable to make it to the scheduled events. And don't forget, you can also go out propagule hunting as a volunteer, as well!

We hope to see you soon!
