Marsh Grass Seed Collection
October 25, 2023 @ 10:30 am – 12:30 pm
Help us collect marsh grass seeds for future living shoreline and marsh restoration projects!
We’re teaming up with Mellow Marsh Farms to gather Smooth Cordgrass (Spartina alterniflora) seeds in the salt marsh. The seeds will be planted later in trays at the nursery and grown into plugs that can be transplanted next spring along eroding shorelines.
Volunteers will meet at 10:30 am at the Hoop Pole Creek trail entrance (across from the Bojangles in Atlantic Station Shopping Center). Please wear shoes and clothes you don’t mind getting wet and muddy. Closed-toed shoes are required. Seed collection supplies, gloves, sunscreen, bug spray, water and snacks will be provided.
This event is limited to 15 people and is weather dependent. Please no large group registrations. Register below to reserve your spot!
