A record number of volunteers worked at the Exploration Green Native Wetland and Tree nurseries on Saturday. They included twenty-five students representing the Lee College IMPACT ECHS Spanish Club. Volunteers potted up and repotted plants and wiped out a massive weed infestation. Mary Carol Edwards informed us that the volunteers working in the native wetland nursery set a record today, potting up 446 water shield plants (Brasenia schreberi). We are all grateful to have so many young volunteers working at Exploration Green!
