On February 5, 2016, MIRA USA participated in an environmental improvement and beautification project at the Independence Heights community was held in Houston, Texas. The goal of the project is to provide a space where it will be possible to renovate, transform, preserve and recover the green zones for its beautification. This project is for the inhabitants of the community which is of great importance and value for its historical part since we want to recognize this locality as the first African American city in Houston.

For the development of the activity, MIRAUSA elaborated a plan of work in two important phases, the first to look for donors of tree species, as well as funds, and a second phase was the execution of the work. The implementation involved planting furrows, selecting the species according to the physical and chemical conditions of the ground, trails adopted, and cleaned the designated space.
