7/28– Swim Day and Guided Nature Walk with Gary Milano !

 Another great day for everyone at Naturelinks. We took a guided nature walk with Gary Milano, whom demonstrated with us the success of the restoration project he has been in charge of on Virginia Key. 

Gary Milano points out the fresh water lagoon, that was made by simply digging into the ground and allowing the fresh water from the aquifer to rise up. The combination of fresh water and salty water area's is vital to the area's natural fauna.

After the walk we went for a swim to cool off from the hot Miami sun !

After our swim, we returned to the concession stand to make lunch. Chef Marta taught us how to make simple and delicious wraps.

After lunch we walked back along the beach to our swim spot for a second swim. It was a very hot day.

We found some interesting things as well.

It was a great day and we look forward to many more ! Our participants have been having such a great time and learning so much, they don't want the summer session to end.
