About this event

Make a direct impact on the restoration of Robinson Preserve! Join us for a salt marsh volunteer planting day at the Robinson Expansion. Salt marshes are essential for healthy fisheries, coastlines, and communities. This important coastal habitat provides food, refuge, and nursery for fish, shrimp, crabs, birds, and protects shorelines from erosion while filtering runoff and improving water quality.

Be prepared to get wet and muddy at these workdays, which may require wading through waist-deep water to reach the interior islands. Closed-toe shoes that strap or tie tightly to your feet are recommended as well as sun protection (long sleeve shirt and pants, hat, sunscreen). Don't forget to bring your water bottle and a snack!

All necessary tools for harvesting and planting will be provided.

Volunteers must be 16 years or older to participate.

Reservations are required.
