Engaging K-12 Students in Salt Marsh Restoration

What is From Seeds to Shoreline?

From Seeds to Shoreline® (S2S) is South Carolina’s only salt marsh restoration program designed for students. The program trains K-12 teachers how to lead their classroom in a year-long marsh restoration.

By getting your school involved in cultivating and transplanting young seedlings of salt marsh grass, your students will not only learn about the importance of this critical coastal ecosystem, but they will be helping restore areas of salt marsh. There’s no better way to learn, serve our local communities, and have fun in the process!

The program was launched by the South Carolina Sea Grant Consortium in 2011 in partnership with the South Carolina Department of Natural Resources and Clemson University Cooperative Extension and serves K-12 students and teachers from across the state.
