Eelgrass is the rainforest of the coast. A perennial flowering plant, is adds structural complexity and promotes sediment stability in our waters. A 2017 study to assess eelgrass loss in Duxbury, Kingston and Plymouth Bays included aerial mapping of growth, field work and a look at the trends leading up to the loss. Learn more about the decline and recommendations to encourage future growth. Sponsored by Clean Harbors, Rockland Federal Credit Union and Mass Cultural Council.
