From the organizers:
“Help us create seagrass mats that will be used to restore seagrass meadows in the Indian River Lagoon. This project is an integral part of our FOSTER (Florida Oceanographic Seagrass Training Education Restoration) program. We will be attaching seagrass fragments to pre-cut burlap mats. No experience needed, but must have nimble fingers. This event is outdoors in our Group Pavilion. Wear clothes that can get a bit wet and dirty, shoes, and please bring a water bottle to stay hydrated. Please note the minimum age for this event is 15 years old. Participants under the age of 16 must be accompanied by a parent/guardian. Participants ages 16-17 need to have signed FOS waivers if participating without a parent/guardian. Contact Rosemary at email@example.com to get these waivers emailed.”
