BAY GRASSES IN CLASSES

The Planting Process

The BGIC program allows students to be involved in each step of the process, from constructing and planting the nursery to transplanting their nursery-raised salt marsh at a restoration site. The students return to the nursery to split and re-plant the remaining grasses to start the process again.
