Follow up: October 29 workday

30 Oct

Our last workday of 2016 was awesome – we planted 1000 marram grass stolons!* Our goal was to encourage native plants to colonize the area around the new water filtration system on the north side of the nature area.

 

We had tons of volunteers, but I didn’t get many photos– too busy digging holes and planting stolons.

Just a fraction of the volunteers who planted marram grass.

 

*What’s a stolon anyway?

Stolons are specialized stems that run horizontally just under the soil surface. We can cut them apart and plant them separately.

Late autumn is beautiful across the dunes!
