Marine Resources Council manages a 45-acre Florida Communities Trust conservation property located in the Town of Jupiter Island in Martin County. This land is maintained quarterly for invasive species including Brazilian pepper, Australian pine, and carrotwood.
Removing invasive species is an essential aspect of land management to ensure native species are able to flourish. Invasive species can also add to coastal erosion issues and become an infrastructure storm hazard if they are not controlled. Learn how to identify invasive species and beautify your yard with natives by visiting your local University of Florida IFAS Extension office.
The Jupiter Island Greenway project also supports our monthly mangrove workshops which allows us to engage the community in a hands-on learning experience caring for our mangrove nursery plants. Workshops are usually held on the first Saturday of every month and are a great outdoor kid-friendly activity. Email Caity@mrcirl.org if you would like to get involved!
