Horseshoe Marsh Work Day - Native Planting
Volunteers are invited to help us plant 1000 native plants and 100 trees to drastically improve bird habitat in our Horseshoe Marsh Sanctuary. This 650-acre wetland complex, located near the Bolivar ferry landing adjacent to the historic Bolivar lighthouse, includes salt marsh and wet coastal prairie surrounding a shallow tidal lagoon. It is critical habitat for large numbers of shorebirds, waders, and ducks including Roseate Spoonbills, Oystercatchers, Long-billed Curlews, Seaside Sparrows and Clapper Rails, among others. As there is no public access to this sanctuary, volunteering is a great way to get to explore this otherwise inaccessible landscape!
