9:00 AM  –  12:00 PM

Tampa Bay Watch is recruiting volunteers for a native grass harvest project at Suncoast Youth Conservation Center, 6650 Dickman Rd, Apollo Beach, FL 33572. We will be pulling the plugs of plants from the ground of the marsh (it’s tough work!) which will be planted at an upcoming Earth Day event at Lassing Park.

This is a muddy project, you'll need to wear clothes and shoes that you don't mind getting wet and dirty.  Wear shoes that tie to your feet. Do not wear flip flops or crocs. Bring a towel to dry off and a plastic bag to put your wet shoes in when finished. Bring a change of shoes and clothes if you like. Please bring a water bottle to fill up and carry with you. We will have a cooler of water to refill your bottle. Wear a hat, sunscreen, bug spray and bring garden gloves. We will provide snacks!
