"Plugs" Plant Day

"Plugs" Plant Day

On Monday, June 3 the Durbin site team was finally able to hold “Plugs” Planting Day. Plugs are small settings of sedges and rushes that were planted along the major Durbin site drainage channel to stabilize the banks and slow flow in rain events. The event was originally planned for mid-May but the cool spring resulted in the plugs not growing to size; it was then scheduled for Saturday, June 1 but was rained out as the first picture shows. On Monday, June 3, two staff from Roundstone Native Seed joined five others adults and three kids to plant 7,500 plugs. It was a Herculean effort!! Thanks to all involved.
