Southwest South River Drive, Little Havana

Also in April of 2002, we partnered with the East Little Havana Neighborhood Enhancement Team (NET) office--which is a neighborhood office of the Miami Police Department--and Citizens for a Better South Florida (once again!) to plant native trees along both sides of SW South River Drive, from the Flagler St. bridge to Jose Marti Park. Below are just a few photos of the planting.
