The Lagoon House

 The Lagoon House, in Palm Bay, offers educational classes focusing on habitat restoration of the Indian River Lagoon.  One of the main focuses is to plant red mangroves, so that is what the students at Community and my three did yesterday. 
We used the seedlings of the red mangroves, the propagules, and planted them in burlap with dirt, then sand, then another layer of dirt.  They then let them grow for 3 years and then plant them along the IRL.  
They also have a contest, whoever brings in the most propagules wins a pizza party.  
My kids might just start collecting propagules.
