Volunteer Sean Connett hunts for mangrove seedlings in Key Biscayne Wednesday as part of the Reclamation Project, a public environmental arts effort created by artist Xavier Cortada. Volunteers for the project place the seedlings in water and distribute them to businesses on Lincoln Road in South Beach, where they will remain through January. The seeds then will be replanted along Biscayne Bay....
