Eelgrass Restoration Sept 27th – 29th

JOIN US TO HELP TRANSPLANT AND RESTORE EELGRASS IN OUR INTERTIDAL ZONE

Last month the Eelgrass Restoration event was cancelled due to unsafe levels of Enterococci in the Estuary due to the large shellfish die-off during the June heat dome.
The event is rescheduled for September 27th-29th and we’re looking for volunteers! It’s easy to learn to tie the rhizomes for transplanting and create more habitat for salmon fry to grow up in along with other intertidal creatures.  This event is fun, and happens outdoors with appropriate Covid distancing.
Seachange Marine Conservation Society in partnership with Cowichan Tribes and the Cowichan Estuary Nature Centre will be hosting this eelgrass transplant event to create and restore eelgrass meadows in the Cowichan Estuary. 
Join us in Hecate Park, Cowichan Bay
Monday, Sept 27th through Wednesday Sept 29th  for  9:30 -11:30 am & 2-4pm shifts
For more information and to sign up to volunteer: call Nikki at 250-652-1662 or Email Nikki@seachangelife.org
