Grasses for the Masses 2

The Grass is back!

On Wednesday, February 17th, Library Specialists Michelle Jerney-Davis and Kevin O'Hagan installed a grass growth chamber in the Library Living Room to help save the Chesapeake Bay! The Grasses for the Masses program enlists volunteers across the region to grow Wild Celery (Vallisneria Americana) as part of a continued effort to clean up the Bay. This is the second year in row we’ve had grass growing in the Library.

Michelle adds distilled water to the growth chamber.

Kevin skims the loose dirt from the chamber surface.

The grass will grow all semester in the Library and then be transplanted into the Potomac River. Come and see our grass grow!
