"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.
Congratulations to Jennifer Campbell and Dr. Chandrakanth Emani, Nathan Powers and Dr. Ajay Srivastava, Shelby Wade and Dr. Michael Stokes, Jessica Johnson and Dr. Jarrett Johnson, and Audrey Brown and Dr. Noah Ashley.
Congratulations to April Butler, Haley Freeman, and Autumn Smith on being named OCSE Scholars!
