Students Work to Restore Threatened Salt Marsh

Several Rogers High School students planted cordgrass last week to help restore the salt marsh.

Biology students from gave back to the community recently by planting Spartina alterniflora at Gooseneck Cove.

As part of restoration effort for this threatened salt marsh, local students harvest seeds in the fall and grow them in their classroom. In the spring, the students plant their crop in the salt marsh on Hazard Road as their part in helping to restore this valuable and delicate environment.

This is the eighth year that Rogers students have contributed to this effort as part of their environmental studies.

Another great example of teaching, learning and community service in our schools!
