Little River Celebration & Cleanup
Dear Friends and Neighbors,
On Saturday March 7th at 8:30am - 1:30pm The Village of El Portal and the Oakland Grove Neighborhood Association will be holding the annual Little River Celebration & Cleanup, a half day event where the community is invited to come out, meet each other, and help to restore this great neighborhood asset's natural beauty.
The Little River is more than just another canal. Explorers wrote about the forceful rapids in the river around where NE 2nd Ave is today, and Tequesta indians and early european settlers both chose to live on its shores. The Little River is a crucial manatee breeding ground.
This year we will have a serenade and blessing by La Fortuna Serenaders and a discussion led by FIU Professor Hugh Gladwin on the history and hydrology of the Little River and the surrounding areas. Find out about how sea level rise could effect the river and learn a little more about the hidden nature in the place where you live, and make a difference in Miami-Dade.
Meet at the flood control dam (approximately 435 NE 82nd Street) at 8:30am. Bring your own canoe or kayak, or RSVP to reserve one. Available canoes are limited so the first to respond will be the first reserved.
