Cities Partner to Build Habitat & Resilience
Back in 2020, the Cities of Hallandale Beach and Hollywood partnered and planned to host an in-person "Ocean Day" event with vendors, panel discussions, a plant giveaway, and free shredding. When COVID started to impact our community, we canceled the event to protect public health. Starting in January of 2021, we transitioned this in-person event to a successful series of webinars ending in a drive-through native plant giveaway.
This past Saturday we held the native plant giveaway for the residents of the two cities, closing out the Ocean Day 2021 event. Residents went home with 2 salt-tolerant native plants and a goodie bag containing literature about environmental efforts in both cities, information on our Florida offshore coral reef, and items to help curb our personal single-use plastic consumption.
