 Ransom Everglades School

Ransom Everglades School provides an educational environment in which the pursuit of honor, academic excellence and intellectual growth is complemented by concern for the physical, cultural and character development of each student. The School provides rigorous college preparation that promotes the student's sense of identity, community, personal integrity and values for a productive and satisfying life, and prepares the student to lead and to contribute to society.

The Reclamation Project has been in partnership with Ransom Everglades since 2009 when the school first exhibited an installation of red mangrove propagules. Since then, the school has continued to house a re-permanent 600 propagule exhibit every year. It's teachers and students have adopted the Project into their curriculum by growing mangrove propagules in seed trays for restoration in addition to their yearly participation in collection, exhibition, and restoration.

The Reclamation Project looks forward to continuing its partnership with Palmer Trinity in the effort to educate, conserve, and restore mangrove habitats.
