Grasses for the Masses: We're Looking for Volunteers!

4601757205_0016fb1591_bThis spring hundreds of volunteers will be wading out into the James and Potomac Rivers, planting underwater grasses, and helping to restore the Chesapeake Bay and its rivers and streams!

These Grasses for the Masses volunteers first will have participated in a CBF workshop this winter before growing wild celery grass from seeds planted in water-filled plastic tubs in their homes, schools, or offices. Wild celery is not only fun and easy to grow, but it is also a vital part of the Bay's ecosystem, improving water quality, reducing erosion, and offering safe haven for native critters.

And it's not too late to join in the fun! Registration for our Grasses for the Masses program is now open. But hurry, spots are filling up quick for this hands-on and rewarding activity, and we'd love to have you join us!
