About the Event

Join us one last time this spring to plant native salt marsh grasses for a restoration site at Cutts Cove in Portsmouth! Salt marshes provide needed intertidal habitat, stabilize shorelines, and store carbon in the soil. Come out to get a little muddy and learn a little about an awesome ecosystem!

We have 1000 remaining low marsh grass plugs left to plant and would love your help!

Free parking is available at Christ Community Church (200 Chase Drive) and walk to the living shoreline through Market Street Park. Gloves, snacks, and water are provided. Feel free to stay as long as you'd like!

What to bring

Clothes and hiking shoes (preferrably) -- anything you don't mind getting muddy and a bottle of water
