On April 17th the first section of sixth graders continued their exploration of water quality and traveled to the Department of Natural Resources' Bennett's Point Field Station in Green Pond, SC. They participated in SCDNR's SCORE program focusing on marsh restoration. Students took a boat ride through the Intracoastal Waterway and set out over 9,000 pounds of bagged oysters and planted Spartina alterniflora behind the reef to prevent erosion, form habitats for ocean organisms, and filter water. This was the culminating experience for the Global Waterway Girls' year-long healthy waterways project. The other sections of sixth graders will participate in the experience on May 1.
