Camp Mahachee, on Old Cutler Road in Coral Gables, has served countless girls, adult members and community members since 1945. And with many historic properties in our community, invasive plants and animal species have become a threat to the long-term success and environmental sustainability of the Camp and adjacent properties.
In 2022, Girl Scouts of Tropical Florida committed to remediation work undertaken to Camp Mahachee's front entrance in partnership with Coral Gables Garden Club, Miami-Dade County and the City of Coral Gables, GSTF recently undertook the final phase of a three-phase remediation and restoration project to:
- Remove invasive plant species
- Restore the native, resilient hardwood South Florida hammock
- Create a butterfly pollinator garden
We also began a series of enchancements throughout the property, from installing impact windows, a water pump and sprinkler system, and electricity in the front entrance, to upgrading the fence, refreshing cabins and updating the fire circle.
There is still work to be done. Learn how you can help us keep Camp Mahachee beautiful for girls now and in the future.
