Description

There is more work to be done at the Kus-kus-sum site before summer. We are looking for volunteers to assist us with potting up some salt marsh plugs, weeding and potentially mulching. Jay Baker-French will be leading these onsite activities. Please note that volunteers need to be able to negotiate uneven ground for this activity and that there are no bathrooms onsite.

If you are going to volunteer, we ask that you dress for the weather, wear sturdy shoes, bring gardening gloves if you have them (we will have extras) and bring a water bottle.
