Today I went to Miami Country Day for the first time. I met Cynthia Hori, the Academic Advisor for the school and AP Environmental Science instructor, as well as Rowena Gerberr, the director of the Abess Center for Environmental Studies. They were very enthusiastic about the project and they gave me a tour of the campus where we began to plan for the upcoming mangrove installations. Ms. Gerberr gave me a tour of the Abess Center, which is a phenomenal learning environment for young students becoming involved in scientific learning. As you enter the building you become immersed in all things of nature, science, and creativity, from the myriad of animals for observation and study, to the mural on the back wall depicting the environmental transitions from the wetlands to the coast.
