At a St. Petersburg school, student volunteers mix beach sand, peat moss, and vermiculite to plant nursery plants. Once the plants are established, Tampa Baywatch staff visit regularly and the students monitor the health of the plants once a week and measure salinity and PH in the ponds. This nursery was built on Feb. 24, 1998, donor plants taken on the 25th and planted on the 26th.
