NORFOLK, VA. — The Chesapeake Bay Foundation (CBF) seeks volunteers to help transplant grasses on its property at Pleasure House Point in Virginia Beach to enhance runoff absorption, protect nearby waterways, and restore wildlife habitat.

The project involves transplanting native grasses growing in the construction site of the future Brock Environmental Center to nearby areas to maximize their potential for wildlife habitat and continue serving as valuable runoff filters and buffers for adjacent Crab Creek and the Lynnhaven River.

Volunteers are needed:

  • Thursday, September 5, 2013, 3:30 p.m. –5:00 p.m.
  • Tuesday, September 10, 2013; 3:30 p.m. –5:00 p.m.

Volunteers should wear garden gloves and closed-toe shoes; tools will be provided.
