Volunteer: TNC Eelgrass Seed Collection

May 15 @ 8:00 amMay 26 @ 5:00 pm

Sign-up required. This opportunity has very specific requirements, including the ability to snorkel.  Please review all the details here and contact Jen Dalke if you are interested.

Each year, The Nature Conservancy and the Virginia Institute of Marine Science (VIMS), along with several partners in the Seaside Heritage Seagrass Community Restoration Program, begin another chapter in the largest seagrass restoration project in the world!

And you can be a part of it.

Volunteer snorkelers and water lovers are needed to collect millions of eelgrass seeds offshore of Oyster on Virginia’s Eastern Shore. Volunteers must sign up to get updates as collection days each year are weather dependent and cancellations may occur.

Trips will last from 4-5 hours.
