Join the Stewardship Team to restore the saltwater marsh in Starlight Park with a volunteer plug planting! Urban wetlands provide important benefits including improving water quality, retaining stormwater, and serving as critical habitats for native wildlife! Please note, that volunteers should dress in clothes that can get dirty and close-toed shoes. We also encourage volunteers to bring their own water bottles. Space is limited and registration is required. Volunteers under 18 must be accompanied by a chaperone.
