Cornell Cares – Beautification and Cleanup at Crystal Lake Sand Pine Scrub
January 22, 2023 @ 9:00 am
Pompano Beach, FL
DATE: Sunday, January 22nd 2023
TIME: 9 AM – 12 PM
LOCATION: Crystal Lake Sand Pine Scrub (3299 NE 3rd Ave, Pompano Beach, FL 33064)
On Sunday, January 22 from 9:00 AM to noon, we will be assisting Broward County Public Parks by removing invasive species and collecting trash at the Crystal Lake Sand Pine Scrub. The Crystal Lake Sand Pine Scrub is a natural preserve and habitat for many native plants and animals and includes a beautiful trail and picnic area. Unfortunately this oasis like many others in the area is under threat from competition by invasive species.
We hope you can come join us as we work to restore the environment to its natural beauty and function. “The scrub habitat that characterizes this site represents one of the rarest and most ecologically sensitive communities in South Florida. Urban development has left less than two percent of Broward County’s original sand pine scrub community, making it a plant community that is difficult to recognize today.” – Broward County Parks and Recreation.
