Hands-On-Wetlands

Wetland plants prevent erosion, stop pollutants from entering the waterways and provide habitat for native species. We planted over 400,000 wetland plants by hand for restoration projects that we completed in 2017. The habitat will offer protection and food sources for Black ducks, Mallards, Diamond Back turtles, Monarch butterflies, and hundreds of species of creatures that share our surroundings.

The native plants that we grow at EC start from seeds collected by our staff. Each specie requires a different cleaning and preparation procedure. When the seed is ready for planting, every pot is filled by hand with a potting mix (secret EC recipe), and the seeds are placed in the pot. From there the pots are moved into the greenhouses where they begin to germinate and reach for the sun on warm spring days. Approximately 8 weeks later, they are ready to be delivered to their forever home.   We collected millions of seeds by hand in 2017.

EC Educators presented programs that peaked students’ interest in the animals and plants that thrive in ecosystems. We visited over 20 local schools, working on activities with over 5,000 students that required clean little hands to get wet and muddy – we make learning fun.
