Marjory Stoneman Douglas 454

Marjory Stoneman Douglas Primary Learning Center

            650 NW 132nd Avenue

 Miami, FL. 33184 


My important Floridian is Marjory Stoneman Douglas, in other words she was the protector of the conservation of the everglades. She didn’t approve with the everglades taken and transformed into land of development. When thinking of places where I could plant a garden honoring Marjory Stoneman Douglas there couldn’t possibility come a better place to my mind than my primary learning center that I attended when I was younger. I grew up understand why she was so important and should always be remembered. Now many students that attend that school don’t really know why their school is named after her, therefore when I got this assignment I knew I had to plant his gardening in the same school. I thought this was a great planting site because it would be done in honor of the person the school is named after. It will show all the younger students the significance this person has, not only to their school but also to Florida. She fought for the beauty of the everglades and did not let anything change her mind. She had the power to prevent the destruction of the beauty of the everglades, the everglades is a pure nature of Florida. She was a fighter and she deserves all this acknowledgment done to her. The part of the school were this garden was planted is seen by everyone, not only those inside the school. Parents and even those that just walk by could see this garden and understand how important Marjory Stoneman Douglas actually was.
