Miami-Dade County Public Schools to plant a tree in every school on April 10, 2012
Miami-Dade County Public Schools has again partnered with artist Xavier Cortada in presenting Native Flags, an eco-project that consists of planting a native tree sapling alongside a green flag at every school on April 10th, 2012. Other presenting partners include the Reclamation Project at the Miami Science Museum, the Florida International University College of Architecture + The Arts | Office of Engaged Creativity (where Cortada serves as Artist-in-Residence), the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation, the Deering Estate at Cutler and the National Association of Counties

Native Flags

As a companion to the tree planting activities, schools and the community at large can also view a WLRN-produced informational video throughout Earth Week, highlighting the relevance of these activities as a way to increase our community’s tree canopy. The video can be accessed by clicking the link below.

Photos of tree planting activities at the individual schools will be uploaded and posted online at after April 10th.
