Portions of Virginia Key are restored and cleaner thanks to a partnership between corporate citizens, local government and nonprofits.
More than 400 volunteers worked together to clear a portion of the Mabel Fentress Miller Nature Trail on Virginia Key. Scientists from Citizens for a Better South Florida, Miami Parks & Recreation Department staff, Miami Waterkeeper and Comcast led volunteers, showing them how to remove exotic and invasive species, as well as educating them about lifeforms native to the island. Younger volunteers participated in a special beach clean-up.
Employees of Comcast participated as part of the 18th annual Comcast Cares Day on Saturday, May 4. In addition, Citizens for a Better South Florida will receive a Comcast Foundation grant on behalf of the volunteers.
