Tampa Bay High School Wetland Nursery 1

Tampa Bay encompasses over 400 square miles and supports a 2,300 square mile watershed. After a century of urbanization and development, nearly half of the mangrove and salt marshes that once existed in the Tampa Bay estuary are gone. In an effort to restore these lost habitats, NMFS partnered with Tampa BayWatch, Inc. to fund a Tampa Bay High School Wetland nursery program. This innovative program recruits high school ecology and science clubs to build wetland nurseries on-campus to grow salt marsh grasses for Tampa bay restoration efforts.
