- A mangrove sprout pokes out of stagnant wetlands along State Road 92 between Goodland and Marco Island on Tuesday, Jan. 17, 2012. The mangroves were slowly killed by the construction of nearby State Road 92 and neighboring residential communities which cut off tidal flow. A mangrove restoration project set to break ground Feb. 22 aims to restore tidal flow to the area by repairing channels and building culverts.
