By participating in the Seagrasses in Classes program, not only does your school benefit, but you are helping the Frenchman Bay Partners, a group of individuals and organizations working together toward a sustainable future for Frenchman Bay, as well. These stakeholders have prioritized eelgrass restoration as a key conservation target, and your students’ work has in some cases helped the group toward this goal. By joining the Frenchman Bay Partners, your school will be kept abreast of the progress that is being made in eelgrass restoration and other conservation targets, and will open up many more opportunities for collaboration (including funding opportunities for joint projects) and for students to observe real bay planning in action. Visit the Frenchman Bay Partners website, and speak to your school administrators about joining the Partners today!
