366 Paul Kroegel

Paul Kroegel, Environmentalist.



Address of the Garden: 11551 lakeside dr, Doral, Fl, 33178

Paul Kroegel was a very important environmentalist for Florida. He came from Germany at seventeen years and dedicated his whole life to bird protection. Indeed, he was who made the possible the opening of the first Bird reserve in United States.

This reserve receives the name of "Pelican island" and is still preserved now at days. He stood day and night protecting pelicans with a shotgun.

This project was very significant for me since I decided to do it in front of a lake. This lake is right across my home and I have the chance to look at it every morning once I wake up. I wanted to do it in this lake because every morning dozens of birds, even pelicans sometimes, arrive to this lake therefore I find it very significant.

The reason why this is very significant for me is because I love birds and wild life. I want to be e biologist and eventually turn into a environmentalist. Therefore, being assigned with Kroegel, was very prideful for me.

I used a mixed of wild flowers and planted the garden in honoree to this pelican Hero.
