Mangrove Seedling



Native Flags is an urban reforestation project presented by the Reclamation Project at the Miami Science Museum. Cortada developed it to help restore native habitats for plants and animals across our community.

Participating residents are asked to plant one of 12 native tree saplings alongside the green project flag in their yard and state: "I hereby reclaim this land for nature." (On the back of the flag, they invited to write things they commit to do to help our environment). The project's conspicuous green flags serve as a catalyst for conversations with neighbors, who will be encouraged to join the effort to help rebuild our native tree canopy.

Flags and saplings are available at the museum gift shop.
