At a St. Petersburg school, student volunteers mix beach sand, peat moss, and
vermiculite to plant nursery plants. Once the plants are established, Tampa
Baywatch staff visit regularly and the students monitor the health of the
plants once a week and measure salinity and PH in the ponds. This nursery was
built on Feb. 24, 1998, donor plants taken on the 25th and planted on the 26th.
