Details: The North Inlet – Winyah Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve is dedicated to promoting healthy estuaries, resilient coastal communities, and thriving ecosystems through research, education, stewardship and training. Native plants are a vital part of Reserve activities, from monitoring algae through a microscope to observing seasonal changes in panoramic views of salt marsh landscapes. Stewardship Coordinator Jen Plunket and Coastal Training Program Coordinator Maeve Snyder will describe how native plants are incorporated into Reserve research and citizen science, as well as in education such as native plant applications for stormwater management and coastal resilience. Participants will learn about the ecosystems of North Inlet and Winyah Bay, the work of the NI-WB NERR, and opportunities to volunteer and participate in community science.
