Tampa Bay Wetland Creation - Palmetto Estuary Spartina Planting

Tampa BayWatch, Inc. staff coordinated two salt marsh transplanting events in 2000-2001 at the Palmetto Estuary Reserve in Manatee County. Last April, approximately 300 students from Bloomingdale High School transplanted 10,000 planting units of Spartina alterniflora at the reserve. In June 2000, approximately 6-7 acres of coastal wetland habitat was restored with 22,000 salt marsh grasses and other coastal species.
