    Florida Atlantic University’s Pine Jog Environmental Education Center has partnered with the refuge in an Urban Wildlife Refuge Partnership to implement the Apple Snail Adoption Program (ASAP). This partnership will promote environmental stewardship, conservation, habitat restoration, and environmental education through classroom and field learning experiences centered on wetland restoration activities. In their classrooms, students in the ASAP will propagate native Florida apple snails to release them at the refuge and at Grassy Waters Everglades Preserve. In their field experiences, students will learn to identify and remove invasive exotic snails and plants as well as restore native habitats by planting trees.
