From Seeds to Shoreline: Expanding Minds and Restoring Marshes

Record #:
From Seeds to Shoreline is a K-12 program which teaches students about estuarine habitats and marsh restoration. As part of the program, students from Beaufort Elementary School in Beaufort, NC planted smooth cordgrass (Spartina alterniflora) at the living shoreline demonstration site on Pivers Island. The program helps students understand natural systems, their connections to the systems, and the benefits of the systems which filter pollutants, stabilize shoreline, and provide nurseries for commercial fishing.
