President's Lake Planting

President's/ University Apartments' Lake

In Spring 2016, approximately 2,000 native aquatic plants were incorporated into the lake landscape between University Apartment's and the President's House. The generous funding for plant material and installation was directly handled thru The Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission. Their goal in partnering with FIU was to enhance aquatic wildlife habitat and community recreation. Since the planting, Housing has added improvements, such as seating along the Northern lake edge and Facilities Grounds Maintenance has been very cooperative working with the Office of University Sustainability throughout the project.
