RSVP REQUIRED: SPOTS ARE LIMITED!!

FIU Honors College student, Nicole Patrick, works with Dr. Vanessa Trujillo to organize beach cleanups of Chicken Key in Biscyane Bay. On this special PAW cleanup, FIU students and alumni will kayak, swim, and picnic together in beautiful Biscayne Bay. Chicken Key is part of the Deering Estate, and this event is part of the Deering Estate Artist-in-Residence Fellowship of Professor John William Bailly.

“Dr. Vanessa Trujillo ’17 received her PhD in Biology with a specialty in nonnative freshwater fish. Currently, Dr. Trujillo researches developing programs to conserve the natural legacy of South Florida, and leads the effort to expand the Deering Estate field station. “Find a mentor that is working in the field of your interest. Explore the world! Read on a topic you like. Take summer courses at your local college. These experiences can then provide a pipeline of opportunities,” said Trujillo. – Krysten Brenlla

Miami Chicken Key Clean-Up

DEERING ESTATE CHICKEN KEY CLEAN-UPS

Canoe out to Chicken Key! Collect marine debris, swim, picnic, and earn service hours all in one…with Professor Bailly and your FIU classmates!

These events are ONLY for FIU students and alumni. Space is limited to 25 people per day. Students must arrive at the Deering Estate by 10:00 on the designated day.

Conservation & Research Specialist Vanessa Trujillo of the Deering Estate and Professor John William Bailly of FIU organize canoeing and snorkeling cleanups with FIU students. Marine debris is prevalent not only along the Miami coast, but also under the ocean’s surface. The irreparable damage of this pollution on the flora and fauna of South Florida is tangible to any that enters the water: habitat destruction, wildlife entanglement, and the resulting deaths of marine mammals.

If you wish to participate in the Deering Estate Miami Ocean Cleanup, here is how to prepare.

  1. Contact Professor Bailly at bailly.john@gmail.com Send him your mobile number and he will add you to the Chicken Key WhatsApp chat.
  2. You will need to complete the required Deering Estate volunteer paperwork.
  3. Each participant will receive certified volunteer hours from the Deering Estate.
  4. Bring your own water shoes and gloves to pick up trash on the island. If you want to snorkel, bring your own mask, snorkel, and fins. It is suggested you wear a long sleeve swim shirt.
  5. Bring a large reusable water bottle, a lunch, and a snack (energy bar and fruit are good).
  6. Please bring large trash bags.
  7. Always wear sunscreen. Bring bug spray as well.
  8. If you are comfortable with it, bring a knife to cut ropes and fishing line out of mangroves.
  9. We will encounter lots of marine life: manatees, sharks, crabs, stingrays. Always look, but never touch. Also, always check cans for octopus, crab, or fish before removing from water.
  10. Bring your GoPro or camera. Share your photos with us!

Miami in Miami Class

Miami exists often as Gabriel García Márquez describes Macondo:

“Macondo is not so much a place as a state of mind, which allows you to see what you want, and how you want to see it.”

The “Miami in Miami” (MIM) seminar examines the historical, social, and cultural identity of Miami. Through field research, students will explore the Who, What, Where, When, Why, and Howof the city and its surroundings. The course will go beyond the four walls of a traditional university setting, and use Miami itself as its classroom. We will walk, talk, and eat our way through the streets and history of Miami, posing questions and searching for answers. By exploring the myth and reality of Miami, this FIU Honors College seminar will formulate an understanding of the core of this vibrant and diverse city. The course will include excursions to Vizcaya Museum & Gardens, the Deering Estate, and Everglades National Park, among others. This seminar is taught by Professor John William Bailly (MFA, Yale University) who has spent a decade leading students on study abroad in Europe.

IDH 3034-3035: Miami in Miami taught by Professor John Bailly.
