Increase your understanding of coastal ecosystems and watersheds and how they are affected by manmade and natural disasters. Join your fellow Comets as we complete environmental conservation projects and serve those who suffer the economic impact of these disasters.
Tasks may include native plant propagation, sea grass restoration, wildlife habitat improvement, dune restoration, storm water treatment, public land restoration and invasive species removal.
At the beginning, we even didn’t know the function of wetlands to the ecosystem exactly, however, in the end, we could explain the Bay’s rating in areas from habitat, to water quality, to wildlife with a simple poster. We evolved from students to little scientists that could educate others about the world in which we live. You see, it is definitely an unbelievable leap.
