High school Science Research students, under the instruction of Dr. Stephanie Forsberg, worked with the Cornell Cooperative Extension Marine Program to collect Spartina seeds on Oct. 25. The seeds will be cultivated into plant material to aid in shoreline resiliency and habitat improvement projects within Southampton Town. The collection, funded by the Southampton Youth Bureau, has the potential to produce up to 25,000 Spartina plants.
