Juana Matos Debris Clean Up

Programa del Estuario de la Bahía de San Juan / Juana Matos Debris Clean Up

A debris clean up was performed on December 11-13 in Juana Matos community to remove vegetation debris from La Cienaga las Cucharillas. It is important that this habitat is restored because it serves as a sponge when there are floods in the area. Collaboration with the Foundation for Puerto Rico, Cuerpo de Bomberos and Corredor del Yaguazo was key to be able to restore the area.


The San Juan Bay Estuary Program is a 501c3 non-profit corporation that designs, implements, and keeps track of restoration actions in order to improve the quality of waters and associated ecosystems within the San Juan Bay Estuary system and its watershed. The Program engages citizens, visitors and tourists, and partners with the government, private, scientific, academic and community sectors.
