Engaging K-12 Students in Salt Marsh Restoration

What is From Seeds to Shoreline?

From Seeds to Shoreline® (S2S) South Carolina’s only salt marsh restoration program designed for K – 12 students and teachers. This year-long program engages participating schools with cultivating and transplanting Spartina alterniflora (smooth cord grass) to designated areas along the state’s coastline.

By getting your school involved in the S2S program, your students will not only learn about the importance of this critical coastal ecosystem, but they help to actively 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.
