Advanced Mangrove Planting

If sea level rise occurs too swiftly, the mangroves will not be able to naturally “walk” to the new beaches farther inland. Rising Waters Confab predicts a value to growing mangroves on dry land now for the future beach. A sample mangrove has been planted in the field behind the Weeks House at the Rauschenberg Residency.   Thanks to Xavier Cortada for the inspiration and Buster Simpson for the stakes.
