Over 120 students planted 1,500 rare native grasses and forbs in just 2 hours, saving Armand Bayou Nature Center’s prairie one plant at a time.

We have a strong partnership with @sanjaccollege and we do 2 planting events every year, one in the spring and one in the fall. Each event we have 100 students but this year however we had over 120 students from four classes. We planted 1,500 plants this morning in 2 hours from 9 to 11. They are all locally rare endemic native grasses and forbs that we propagated and grew locally in our nursery and greenhouse, saving the prairie again one plant at a time. #conservation #prairie
