November 9, 2017 | Planting and Harvesting Native Grasses
Fourteen River Watchers planted 16 Switchgrass and 12 Eastern Gamagrass plugs at the EcoHouse with a couple students from the Camacho Activity Center – Growing Outdoor Leaders program. The students learned how to plant grass plugs and harvest the seeds for future restoration projects and activities with Shoal Creek Conservancy and The Trail Foundation. The students also learned how these deep-rooted native grasses are important for riparian health as they help improve water quality and increase groundwater filtration.
