In 2000, a restoration project was initiated to convert a dredge spoil area into a tidal lagoon. The photo on the right taken in 2002 shows the rapid growth of the thousands of young red mangrove planted around the lagoon.
Tens of thousands of red mangrove propagules were collected, potted and later planted by volunteers for the new wetland.
A five-acre prescribed burn was conducted by Palm Beach County, Department of Environmental Resources Management in January 2008. This is the third prescribed burn conducted on the property. These burns regenerate overgrown oak scrub and reduce fuel levels in this urban setting.
