The Reclamation Project

Xavier Cortada will discuss his Reclamation Project at Miami Dade College.

The Reclamation Project is a participatory eco-art project launched by Xavier Cortada in 2006. It explores our ability to coexist with the natural world.

Since 2007, the coastal reforestation component of the Reclamation Project has been based at the Miami Science Museum , where an installation of 1,100 mangrove seedlings is on permanent exhibit.

Annually, volunteers collect mangrove propagules in coastal areas. The propagules are then exhibited in clear, water-filled cups (see: Gallery of Installations) where they are nurtured into seedlings and eventually planted along coastal areas. This coastal reforestation creates new habitats above and below the water line.

For more information about the project, visit the official Reclamation project page (http://www.reclamationproject.net).
