As part of their community service effort, Mr. Jim Forret's University 100 class assisted with work on the Cade Wetlands Research Center. The students learned about the project at Cade from Dr. Visser and got to see the freshwater wetlands and the recently installed liners for the brackish wetlands. After that, they assisted with filling pots with soil, separating clumps of marsh grass to target species, and planting target species in pots. Approximately 200 plants were potted during the volunteer event. Once soil is returned to the brackish wetlands, these potted plants will be transplanted to their final location in the wetlands research area. Maybe with volunteers from the next UNIV100 class.
