(Re-)Planting Salt Marsh Grass: Galveston Bay Foundation

In Feburary, fifteen of my students ripped up some two-hundred salt marsh grass stalks.  After a few months of careful husbandry, we re-planted the stalks in the middle of Trinity Bay.  I’ll let the Galveston Bay Foundation take it from here…

We got muddy and wet and smiles on our faces.

Replanting the salt grass is pretty easy.  Dig a hole with a dibbler (no really, that’s the tool’s name.)

Wash off excess soil in the water.

Make the plant and muddy hole meet in harmony.

Float on down to the next spot.

I hope you enjoyed this 4th of July.  Make it safe and keep the rubber side down.
