Very enjoyable day with friends on the Eastern Shore yesterday. Out with the Nature Conservancy collecting seagrass on South Bay inside of Wreck Island. The shallow waters lost their seagrass decades ago because of a disease and a hurricane. But it is now coming back with the help of some scientists and volunteers.
The seagrass is harvested for their seeds, which are allowed to cure, separate from the stock and then replanted in the fall. If you like seafood you have to love seagrass, the nursery for crabs, scallops and fish. A great day on (and in) the water.
