Tree's company: Everglades student photography project

More than 500 local adults and children volunteered their time on October 25 to help the Everglades at the Marshall Foundation's Eigth annual Cypress Harvest & Student Photography Project last weekend.

The crowd, which included families, individuals, scout troops and community groups, collected 175 pounds of cypress seeds at the Arthur R. Marshall Loxahatchee National Wildlife Refuge in Boynton Beach. The seeds of the native, wetland tree will be germinated into saplings at a local nursery, and then planted to help restore the Florida Everglades. (read more)
