Crane Point clears the creek

Crane Point Hammock Museum and Nature Center is clearing out what’s known as “Rachel Creek.” The little cut in the mangroves of the bayside property has existed for decades, and now after five years of diligently pursuing funding, the waterway is being restored courtesy of an $800,000 grant from the Florida Keys Mitigation Trust Fund. “We’re clearing out the culverts and all of the debris that has collected,” said the museum’s Charlotte Quinn, adding she’s hoping to procure a flamingo to populate the waterway.
