Project Watershed Plans for Spring Eelgrass Transplants
Both an intertidal and subtidal transplant are planned for this year. The subtidal work will take place with divers off just south of Ships Point in an area where Project Watershed undertook some saltmarsh restoration work last year. Two sites are being considered for the intertidal transplant, either Little River or Miracle Beach. Once site selection is confirmed the intertidal transplant will take place, with the help of volunteers, during the low tide window between May 25 and 30. Post-transplant the beds will be seasonally monitored to ensure that the restoration has been effective.
