Keeping our "Eyes on Seagrass"
CHNEP volunteers participated in an "Eyes on Seagrass" Citizen Scientist program training with Charlotte County Florida Sea Grant! Forest Hecker, Florida Sea Grant Program Assistant, trained over 20 volunteers in one morning to participate in the collection of valuable information about seagrass in Charlotte Harbor! Seagrasses are submerged flowering plants found in shallow marine waters. Because they use sunlight for photosynthesis, seagrasses require clear water to survive.
